Research Applications

On this page we will provide a description and access to our Research Parameter Files from our studies in northern British Columbia. There are issues of intellectual property rights with providing our most current research parameter files that we are still considering. For now, you need to contact Dr. David Coates if you wish to use one of our research parameter files for either sub-boreal spruce or interior cedar hemlock forests.

A report titled "Documentation for the SORTIE-ND SBS Research Parameter File Version 1.0" prepared by Rasmus Astrup, K. David Coates, Erin Hall, and Aaron Trowbridge for a SORTIE-ND training workshop in Smithers, in 2007 provides extensive background information on Research Parameter File 1.0 for sub-boreal spruce forests.
