  1. Instantaneous emissions represent the net difference between the CO2 from time-distributed oxidation in HWPs and the CO2 from the post-harvest forest regrowth at the corresponding year. Cumulative emissions refer to the integral (sum over time) of the instantaneous emissions. The time-frame is expanded until 2100 (85 years after the last year from the analysis) in order to capture the long-lasting impacts from HWPs in the assessment period
