Exogenous Assumptions—Framing the Base Case and Scenarios

  • Darius M. Adams
  • Richard W. Haynes
Part of the Managing Forest Ecosystems book series (MAFE, volume 14)

This chapter examines some of the broad considerations that help determine the number and form of exogenous variables in a model and the projections of their future behavior. It outlines the major classes of exogenous inputs used in the Timber Assessment Projection System and summarizes the exogenous variable projections for the base case that are not addressed in other chapters.
