Overview of today's NCX model including the recent changes
Why harvest deferral credit (HDC) volumes change over time
A nuts and bolts look at how NCX calculates business-as-usual (BAU) baselines for landowner properties

Dig Deeper into How the NCX Model Works
Dr. Joe Shannon works extensively with the NCX modeling system to validate and improve its predictive strength and utility in our carbon exchange. He will discuss how the NCX model continues to evolve over time through updated inputs and methodologies. We will look at how model improvements have resulted in assessment results changes and what to expect going forward.

Forester Engagement Manager
Lucas serves as Forester Engagement Manager at NCX. He is focused on outreach and support to some of our most important partners, foresters, who are often our direct link to participating landowners and integral to the NCX program.

Outside of work, he can usually be found in the woods or on the water with his wife and two children.
Dr. Joe Shannon
Joe is a data scientist at NCX with a background in forestry and forest hydrology. His primary work is maintaining and improving the NCX harvest risk model we use to estimate the expected impact of forest management on carbon.
He started in forestry at the University of New Hampshire. After graduation, he worked for the US Forest Service performing inventories and timber sale preparation. He spent 13 years in Minnesota and Michigan researching the impact of forest management, invasive insects, and climate change on water quality and quantity, before joining NCX.
