Localizing a diameter increment model with a sequential Bayesian procedure.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A sequential Bayesian procedure is presented and used for localizing a nonlinear diameter increment model taken from a regional forest growth projection system. With this procedure, diameter growth monitored in a subregion of interest can be used to adjust the parameters of a regional model. An example is given where the procedure is used to localize a model developed for the Western Oregon region to a Douglas-fir Pseudotsuga menziesii stand in NW Oregon. Another example is presented where the adjustment procedure is used to adjust for the effects of fertilizer. -from Author
