SoCal EcoServe

The Southern California Ecosystem Services tool (SoCal EcoServe) allows users to map, quantify, and apply monetary value to ecological benefits derived from the chaparral ecosystems of the Angeles, Cleveland, Los Padres, and San Bernardino National Forests of southern California. The tool is useful in performing post-fire assessments and reports on six ecosystem services:
  • Biodiversity
  • Carbon storage
  • Groundwater recharge
  • Recreation
  • Soil erosion and retention
  • Water runoff

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.
