Forecasted precipitation and temperature averages are not likely to be uniform throughout the South, and significant variations expected across the five subregions. 2 A1B) under Cornerstone A is predicted to result in the least decadal precipitation by 2060, with an overall average of 810 mm for all five southern subregions and a low of 525 mm in the Mid-South.
In 2006, the Piedmont had the highest population density (about 250 people per square mile or ppsm), followed by the Coastal Plain and Appalachian-Cumberland highlands with intermediate densities (100–150 ppsm) and the Mid-South and Mississippi Alluvial Valley with the lowest densities (75 ppsm). 4 Projections of population density, 2006–2060, for the five subregions of the Southern United States under storyline A1B (low population growth, high economic growth, high energy use) from the 2010 Resources Planning Act (RPA) assessment.
2010). The age of each plot was determined for the next period, and if harvested, the plot was determined to be naturally regenerated or planted. Forecasted climate (including temperature and precipitation) was assigned and forest conditions on the plot were inferred based on the harvest/no harvest decision, age, and climate selection. Planting probabilities were derived from the frequency of observed planting on harvested plots, calculated for each forest type in each state using the most recent inventory period and were adjusted to reflect the assumptions of each Cornerstone Future as described earlier.
