Forest + Climate Visualization Partnership
The Climate and Applied Forest Research Institute at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (CAFRI at SUNY ESF) and Michigan State University Forest Carbon and Climate Program (MSU FCCP) have partnered to form the Forest + Climate Visualization Partnership (FCVP). The partnership serves a unique and critical role in forest climate education, producing innovative and accessible visual media to communicate complex relationships between forests, carbon, climate, and land management.
The collaboration leverages each organization’s expertise in forestry, climate sciences, carbon fluxes and storage, hyper-realistic forest visualization, and graphic design to develop state-of-the-art depictions of forest dynamics over space and time. By employing a suite of visualization tools, the FCVP produces tailored educational media relevant and comprehensible to foresters, policy makers, resource managers, education professionals, landowners, and the public.
