The impact of pine beetle infestation on monoterpene emissions and secondary organic aerosol formation in western North America
MetadataShow full item record
Over the last decade, an extensive beetle outbreak has impacted western North America resulting in the mortality of over 100,000 km2 of forest throughout British Columbia and the western United States. Climate change has aided the expansion and continuation of this beetle infestation for more than a decade as beetles survive milder winters and expand northward and to higher elevation areas. Studies have been conducted to investigate the impact of this disturbance on forest carbon stocks, beetle-fire interactions, and meteorological variables, as well as to affirm the importance of including ...
