Casual agents of disturbance for the year 2006 in the ABoVE domain for tile BH19V15 (A) with the Tasseled Cap change (dTC) image in the same year for the same region (B). In the dTC image, Band_1 is change in brightness; Band_2 is change in greenness; Band_3 is change in wetness. The pixel resolution is 30 meters.

Body
Spatial data on disturbance agents of fire, insects, and logging in the ABoVE core domain at an annual time step from 1987-2012 and 30 m resolution.
