U.S. Vegetation Data Available

Submitted by ORNL DAAC Staff on 2003-03-10

The ORNL DAAC announces the release of two U.S. data products in its Vegetation Collections.

  • "GEOECOLOGY: County-Level Environmental Data for the United States, 1964-1979" is a compilation of U.S. environmental data sets for research and development needs. The compilation includes selected data pertaining to terrain and soils, water resources, forestry, vegetation, agriculture, land use, wildlife, air quality, climate, natural areas, and endangered species at the county level of resolution.

  • "Woody Biomass for Eastern U.S. Forests, 1983-1996" provides estimates of woody biomass density and biomass pools for forests in 33 eastern states of the United States. The estimates were derived at the county scale of resolution by using new approaches for converting inventoried wood volume to estimates of aboveground and belowground biomass.

See our Vegetation Collections page to access the data and documentation associated with these and other vegetation data sets maintained by the ORNL DAAC.
