a Harvest-related C dynamics (in Mt CO2 year−1, reported on the left axis) and volume removed according to our model (in million m3, on the right axis), in terms of fuelwood (FW) immediately released into the atmosphere and industrial roundwood (IRW) moved from forest to HWP; b indirect total CO2 emissions (in Mt CO2 year−1, reported on the left axis) due to storm and insect attacks (reported as volume, in million m3, on the left axis), further distinguished between the amount of biomass moved from living biomass to DOM pool (black dots) due to the disturbances and directly recovered as salvage logging (white dots); c CO2 emissions (in Mt CO2 year−1) due to fires, distinguished between direct—i.e. immediately released into the atmosphere (according to our estimates and compared with the data reported in the EU GHGI [13])—and indirect emissions, i.e. moved from biomass to DOM pool (black dots), from where it will decompose in subsequent years
