ST-Sim course + workshop on modeling land use change and carbon: June 12-14

Course & Workshop

Sponsored by

California Air Resources Board

U.S. Geological Survey

Apex Resource Management Solutions

This unique event begins with a two-day online course on the fundamentals of developing state-and-transition simulation models of landscape change, followed by an optional one-day workshop on how this approach has been used to integrate projections of land-use/land-cover change and terrestrial carbon dynamics across the state of California.

State-and-transition simulation modeling online course: June 12-13, 2018

This two-day course establishes the fundamentals attendees need to use the free ST-Sim software to develop spatially-explicit, integrated models of both landscape change and carbon dynamics. The course will be delivered interactively online with an option to follow the course in a group setting at the California Air Resources headquarters in Sacramento, California.

California land use and terrestrial carbon modeling workshop: June 14, 2018

This workshop focuses on how the U.S. Geological Survey has used the ST-Sim software to develop and apply the Land Use and Carbon Scenario Simulator (LUCAS) in California. The California Air Resources Board will host this workshop at their headquarters in Sacramento, California, with live-streaming available for those who are unable to attend in-person.
