Time dynamics and radiative forcing of forest bioenergy systems

Abstract

In this chapter we explore the temporal dynamics of using forest bioenergy to mitigate climate change. We consider such issues as: growth dynamics of forests under different management regimes; the substitution effects of different bioenergy and biomaterial uses; temporary carbon storage in harvested biomass; the availability of different biomass fractions at different points of a wood product life cycle; and changes in carbon content of forest soils. We introduce the metric of radiative forcing, which quantifies the accumulating energy due to the global greenhouse effect, and we describe a method to estimate quantitatively and to compare the cumulative radiative forcing (CRF) of forest bioenergy systems and reference fossil energy...

In this chapter we explore the temporal dynamics of using forest bioenergy to mitigate climate change. We consider such issues as: growth dynamics of forests under different management regimes; the substitution effects of different bioenergy and biomaterial uses; temporary carbon storage in harvested biomass; the availability of different biomass fractions at different points of a wood product life cycle; and changes in carbon content of forest soils. We introduce the metric of radiative forcing, which quantifies the accumulating energy due to the global greenhouse effect, and we describe a method to estimate quantitatively and to compare the cumulative radiative forcing (CRF) of forest bioenergy systems and reference fossil energy systems. In three case studies, we describe the time dynamics and estimate the CRF profiles of various forest biomass systems.
