The Southern California Ecosystem Services tool (SoCal EcoServe)

The tool is useful in performing post-fire assessments and reports on six ecosystem services:
SoCal EcoServe generates maps, graphs, and tables of pre- and post-wildfire conditions, which land managers can use to estimate environmental impacts for natural resource damage assessments and prioritize restoration activities.
- Carbon storage
- Groundwater recharge
- Soil erosion and retention
- Water runoff
