Photo of ForCaMF output showing non-soil carbon storage in all forests burned in Ravalli County, Montana, between 1999 and 2001.  The 100-year projected carbon storage following observed fire patterns and intensities (blue) is contrasted with storage associated with the same stands if no fire had occurred (green).  Error bars represent the standard deviation of 2000 simulations. Forest Service
