Recent drought effects on Alberta’s forests under a changing climate

November 21, 2017

12:00 Mountain

Ted Hogg, Research Scientist, Natural Resources Canada – Canadian Forest Service

Since the turn of the 21st century, conditions have been exceptionally dry across large areas of the western Canadian boreal forest, especially in Alberta.  In our research, we are using a combination of tree-ring analysis and monitoring of forest plots to examine the impact of recent severe droughts on the growth and health of aspen (poplar) and white spruce forests across the region.  The work includes application of two indicators of moisture conditions relevant to water stress in forests: the Climate Moisture Index and the Soil Moisture Index.   Our results have revealed that the exceptional droughts of 2001-2002 and 2014-2016 have led to widespread decline in both of these commercially important tree species across Alberta’s boreal and parkland zones.  This poses a serious concern for the future, based on model projections of warmer and drier conditions across the region in future under a changing climate.  From a forest management perspective, successful adaptation may require the application of innovative practices aimed at minimizing the negative aspects of climate change (e.g., increased drought, fire and insect damage) while realizing its potential benefits (e.g., increased tree growth from longer growing seasons).

Articles written by our members:
  • Building Better Stage-Discharge Rating Curves by Ian Roberston
    On the basis of his extensive experience in developing stage-discharge relationships for numerous gauging sites on rivers in both India and the UK, Robertson had developed a powerful methodology for deriving river-rating curves from even limited and sometimes complex stage-discharge observations.
  • Logarithmic Plotting of Stage-Discharge Observation by S. Thomas Lavender
    There are a number of point In favour Of logarithmic plotting and the method is of course very old. It is described in some quite old departmental textbooks of a number of oversea territories and it is referred to at some length in Morley Parker' s 'The Control of Water'.
