400 Years of Fire and Wind in the BWCAW
#: CBEP   ID: 9154   Section: 061520C19  
Description:
NOTE: DATE AND LOCATION CHANGE
Minnesota's Boundary Waters are world famous for studies of large natural disturbances. We will examine the landscape patterns that fires have created, as well as large fluctuations in fire frequency, over the last 400 years. In recent years changing climate has resulted in new disturbance types, including the big blowdown of 1999, and the return of large fires in the 21st century. We will discuss how the forests are responding to all of these changes.
