care4cmodel: Carbon-Related Assessment of Silvicultural Concepts

A simulation model and accompanying functions that support assessing silvicultural concepts on the forest estate level with a focus on the CO2 uptake by wood growth and CO2 emissions by forest operations. For achieving this, a virtual forest estate area is split into the areas covered by typical phases of the silvicultural concept of interest. Given initial area shares of these phases, the dynamics of these areas is simulated. The typical carbon stocks and flows which are known for all phases are attributed post-hoc to the areas and upscaled to the estate level. CO2 emissions by forest operations are estimated based on the amounts and dimensions of the harvested timber. Probabilities of damage events are taken into account.
