This study proposes to use current scientific models on the geographical distribution of species, wildfire and urban growth in future climates to identify vulnerable species, and ecosystems.ﾠﾠThe vulnerability analyses conducted in this study will help to identify strategies to ameliorate the negative effects of climate change and provide adaptation strategies at a regional level.ﾠﾠ
The main priority of the project will be to obtain a baseline evaluation of GHG emissions (CO2, CH4 and N2O) following the application of biochar materials.ﾠﾠﾠAﾠﾠproject advisory committee will be established to discuss progress and plans on the research and outreach activities.ﾠﾠThe committee will be comprised of representatives from the farming community, other state agencies (ARB, EPA, etc.), the electricity sector, EPRI, and private companies.ﾠﾠ
