Afforestation to mitigate climate doesn’t always work

Afforestation to mitigate climate doesn’t always work

Seminar
Speaker: Hanna Lee
Date: Tue, 2019-12-03 16:00 to 17:00
Venue: ASE 3D Viz Laboratory Room (N2-B1c-16c)

About the Event

Afforestation is generally viewed as a very positive and inexpensive method to mitigate climate change. This method works as expected in the tropics, where biogeochemical and biogeophysical feedbacks are aligned. In the mid to high latitude ecosystems, afforestation has more consequences via stronger biogeophysical feedbacks such as albedo and evapotranspiration change, which can offset the carbon uptake benefits. I will show how the recent policy implication in Norway to planting trees in unused landscapes fails to mitigate climate due to combined effects in biology, physical climate, and human dimension.
