Under changing climate storms and reduced soil frosts and increased dry periods are more likely. Part of the storm damages in forests are not mapped by forest owners that live in cities. The objective of the project is to develop a map that provides storm damage risk estimates for Finland. Here we combine GIS data and modelling in order to combine those with the description of forest structure.
(1) We will produce a map product (that can be updated) that describes storm damage risks for Finnish forests.
(2) We will produce an average storm damage map for Finland that describes storm damage risks for Finnish forests based on historical data.
(3) We test our products against NFI data
