    Course information

    This short course, curated by Michigan State University's Forest Carbon and Climate Program, will develop foundational knowledge in the relationship between climate regulation, Forests, and Forest Carbon. In five modules, the course covers the 1) Carbon Cycle and Storage, 2) Humans, the Global Carbon Cycle, and Terrestrial Sinks, 3) Forest Ecosystems and Carbon Storage, 4) Forest Ecosystem Carbon Pools and Fluxes, and 5) Disturbances and their Carbon Impact. Each module will outline its respective learning objectives. Course content will include recorded presentations, links to online resources, and recommended reading.

    Course start date

    Course content will be accessible starting April 19.

    Course pace

    This course is self-paced with an expected completion time frame of up to 6 weeks. This course must be completed in sequence and each presentation must be viewed in entirety to progress to the next section. Once a section is complete participants can return to the previous section.

    Learning Objectives

    Upon successful completion of this short course, participants will:

    1. Be familiar with and able to identify the carbon cycle and its connection to natural and human-caused global warming
    2. Know about trends in atmospheric GHG emissions and their impact on the carbon cycle
    3. Understand sources and sinks, and the role of natural forests and the forestry sector
    4. Understand that forest composition, structure, and function influence carbon storage
    5. Remember the pools of carbon with forested ecosystems
    6. Apply knowledge of forest structure differences to forest carbon pools and fluxes by forest type
    7. Be able to communicate global distribution of carbon storage in forests
    8. Remember that management planning and decision-making can minimize the carbon losses from natural and human-caused disturbances

    Rubric
