Climate change, impacts and adaptation scenarios : climate change and forest and range management in British Columbia by David Leslie Spittlehouse( )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Technical Report is one of two foundation papers for the B.C. Ministry of Forest and Range (MoFR) Future Forest Ecosystems Initiative (FFEI). These papers will increase the awareness of the potential impact of climate change on forest and range resources in British Columbia. They will also provide information to aid in assessing the vulnerability of British Columbia's forest and range resources and their management, leading to the development of adaptation strategies for a changing climate. The FFEI was initiated by the Chief Forester with a symposium and workshop in December 2005. At the same time the MoFR Climate Change Task Team was preparing a report on how the MoFR should strategically position itself with respect to the potential impacts of climate change on the province's forest and range resources. The present report draws on the Task Team report, recommendations from the FFEI workshop, and numerous other documents including the most recent reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It provides a summary of future possible climates for British Columbia, a brief review of possible impacts on forest and range resources, and options for and challenges to adapting to climate change. Finally, there are recommendations on how the MoFR might respond to climate change. The report contains four appendices that expand on material presented in the body of the report, including information on the past as well as on future climates of British Columbia.

Forest soil temperature manual by Robert John Stathers( Book )

7 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Environmental conditions are important in determining the survival, growth and distribution of tree species, although information about the forest soil thermal regimes in B.C. is limited. This manual describes how silvicultural treatments can modify soil thermal regimes, emphasizing the need for improving soils for conifer seedlings growing in forest clearcuts. It also describes time and depth variations in the soil profile, physical factors which influence soil temperature, methods and instruments used to measure soil temperature, procedures for interpreting soil temperature measurements, and methods of classifying soil thermal regimes
Interior West watershed management : proceedings of a symposium held April 8, 9, 10, 1980, Spokane, Washington by David M Baumgartner( Book )

Forest, edge and opening microclimate at Sicamous Creek by David Leslie Spittlehouse( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study described in this report was part of a larger project established in 1990, the Sicamous Creek Silvicultural Systems Project (Vyse 1997, 1999). The larger project is intended to address public and professional concerns about the effects of clearcut harvesting on high-elevation forests in the southern interior of British Columbia. The objectives of the study reported here were: to provide weather data for the Sicamous Creek Silvicultural Systems Project; to perform intensive, brief experiments to determine the variation in time and space of weather variables not amenable to long-term monitoring; to obtain measurements of microclimate at various positions across a forest edge and within openings of various sizes; and to validate models of solar irradiance, wind fields, and microclimate across a forest edge and in openings.--Document

Using data loggers in the field by David Leslie Spittlehouse( Book )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guide for the use of electronic data loggers (particularly the Campbell Scientific Inc. CR21, CR10 and 21X) in an environmental monitoring program. The basic principles of data collection, the problems that can be encountered, and approaches to avoid these problems are presented. Coverage includes the installation, operation, and maintenance of data loggers; and the retrieval and determination of the accuracy of the data

Spatial climate data and assessment of climate change impacts on forest ecosystems by David Leslie Spittlehouse( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Applying climate data in resource management requires matching the spatial scales of climate and resource databases. However, the network of weather measurements is sparse and usually measurements are not made anywhere near the location of interest. Consequently, the requisite information must be predicted by interpolation. Furthermore, there is the need to determine biologically relevant variables such as degree-days and frost-free period from the interpolated temperature and precipitation data. This report describes the process of increasing the spatial resolution (downscaling) of the PRISM data for British Columbia to produce an essentially scale-free set of climate data. It includes methods to determine derived variables such as degree days and frost free period from the normals data. Methods for determining inter-annual variability are also evaluated. Scenarios from several Global Circulation Models (GCMs) were combined with the high-resolution reference period surfaces to predict future climate surfaces for BC. A stand-alone MS Windows computer application (ClimateBC) was developed to perform the downscaling process, calculate derived climate variables, and add climate change predictions from a selection of GCMs for any desired point location, defined by latitude, longitude and elevation in the study area. Examples of using the high spatial resolution data for current and future climate in hydrological, ecological and genecological studies are presented
