High-resolution Biomass for Northwestern Forests

Aboveground Biomass

Forest aboveground biomass in megagrams per hectare for the year 2016.

Annual maps of aboveground biomass are available for forests in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and western Montana, USA.

Soil Organic Carbon in Tidal Wetlands

Estuary Classes

Estuaries classes used in the study: former river valley primary estuary, former glacier valley primary estuary, river delta primary estuary, tectonic structural primary estuary, coastal lagoon secondary estuary, and unclassified estuary.

Soil organic carbon (SOC) estimates and environmental data for US estuaries are available for the period 1972-2015.

Forest Aboveground Biomass in Para, Brazil

Forest aboveground biomass.

Assimilated predictions of forest aboveground biomass across the Paragominas Municipality, Brazil.

Estimates of forest aboveground biomass for the Paragominas municipality, in Para, Brazil, were derived from LiDAR and PALSAR data.

Tropical Forest Biomass in Gabon

Aboveground biomass.

Aboveground biomass mapped at 0.25 ha resolution for the Mondah study site in Gabon, West Africa.

The AfriSAR campaign produced maps of aboveground biomass for four forested sites in Gabon based on field data and LiDAR scans.

Mapping Global Mangrove Forests

Mangrove cover and height.

Heights of mangrove forests along the northern coast of Borneo (countries Brunei and Malaysia) reach 39 meters tall. Mangrove cover is illustrated in orange, where darker orange represents taller canopies.

Maps of the global distribution and biomass of mangrove forests are available for 116 countries.
