Forest Growth Models


CArbon BALAnce

CABALA (CArbon BALAnce) is a model designed to support management of plantations and forests. Using inputs like rainfall, temperature, salinity, water table depth and data on the species of tree, CABALA can estimate variables like biomass production, carbon sequestration, nitrogen content and canopy height of trees in plantations and forests. CABALA can be used to model relatively homogeneous forests and plantations with a wide range of planting designs, including row, widely spaced and block plantings. [source website]
