The NRRI’s Forest Change Assessment Simulation Tool is designed to provide simulations of how forest composition and the goods and services that forests provide will change from 2020 to 2100 under select harvest volume and climate scenarios. The goal is to help Minnesotans understand both how forests might change under pressure from changing markets and a changing climate over time and how society values the goods and services they provide.

Participants will learn about the models, input and output that underlay the modeled outputs, how to use the tool to visualize changes under different scenarios through time, and how to interpret the output in a meaningful way to incorporate it into their planning processes. This will be a hands-on workshop where participants will be able to work with the tool, develop queries and discuss outputs with the modeling team leads to better understand the maps and what they are seeing.
