Aboveground biomass in Sonoma County

Estimated aboveground biomass for Sonoma County

Estimated aboveground biomass (Mg/ha) for Sonoma County at 30-m spatial resolution using the random forest method. Zoom-in figure is a subset near Santa Rosa, the largest city in California's North Coast.

CMS: LiDAR-derived Biomass, Canopy Height and Cover, Sonoma County, California, 2013

This data set provides estimates of above-ground biomass (AGB), canopy height, and percent tree cover at 30-m spatial resolution for Sonoma County, California, USA, for the nominal year 2013. Biomass estimates, megagrams of biomass per hectare (Mg/ha) were generated using a combination of LiDAR data, field plot measurements, and random forest modeling approaches. Estimates of AGB uncertainty are also provided. Maximum canopy height and tree cover were derived from LiDAR data and high-resolution National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) images.
