Abstract

The Carbon Budget Model of the Canadian Forest Sector (CBM-CFS3), Version 1.2 presented in this user’s guide was developed to meet the operational-scale forest carbon accounting needs of forest managers and analysts across Canada. The CBM-CFS3 is a stand- and landscape-level modeling framework that can be used to simulate the dynamics of all forest carbon stocks required under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol. It is compliant with the carbon estimation methods outlined in the guidelines of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The model uses much of the same information that is required for forest management planning activities (e.g., forest inventory, growth and yield curves, natural and human-induced disturbance information, forest management schedule and land-use change this sophisticated but user-friendly software tool, users apply their own stand- and landscapelevel forest management information to calculate carbon stocks and stock changes for the past (monitoring) or into the future (projection). Users can also create, simulate and compare various forests management scenarios in order to assess impacts on carbon. Tools supplied with the model assist users with importing required data from common timber supply models such as Remsoft Spatial Woodstock™ and the Strategic Forest Management Model© (SFMM) or from userdeveloped data files. The model contains graph user interfaces to help prepare data, define scenarios, perform analyses, and examine results. Results of analyses can be used for various types of forest ecosystem carbon reporting requirements. Although the model currently contains a set of default ecological parameters appropriate for Canada, these parameters can be modified by the user, allowing for the application of the model in other countries.
