The Model > Validation


This page describes several validation tests and applications of the model for both short and long-term projections of stand growth.

Validation: MGM2009A and MGM2010A

The following dataset are currently being used to validate MGM:

  • SRD Old Growth PSP's
  • SRD Stand Dynamic System Plots (SDS)
  • WESBOGY Long Term Study (LTS)
  • Saskatchewan PSP's
  • Saskatchewan MS - 153 SW Release Study
  • Hotchkiss Understory Protection Study

A manuscript titled "The validation and evaluation of the Mixedwood Growth Model (MGM) for use in forest management decision making" has been submitted to the Forestry Chronicle for review.
