Sub-Saharan Africa High Res Woody Cover and Biomass Estimates

Map of sub-Saharan Africa estimates of woody biomass.

Estimates of woody biomass (tree and shrubs) at 1-km resolution in megagrams per hectare (Mg ha-1). Biomass was estimated from canopy cover, canopy height, and tree allometry. Source: C.W. Ross

Estimates of woody cover and biomass across sub-Saharan Africa were derived from observations, tree allometry equations, and remote-sensing products.

Improved LiDAR-derived Biomass for Sonoma County, CA

Aboveground biomass graphical map for Sonoma County.

Estimated aboveground biomass (Mg/ha) for Sonoma County at 30 m spatial resolution with the 5th-95th percentile range and the standard deviation (SD) of per-pixel biomass estimates shown in the top left and bottom left, respectively.

A new dataset used a parametric modeling approach to estimate biomass from airborne LiDAR data and field measurements.

LiDAR Derived Aboveground Biomass for Northwestern USA Forests

Map of sampling locations.

The locations of the 176 lidar collection areas (light green polygons) acquired between 2002 and 2016.

Aboveground biomass was derived from forest inventory data and lidar imagery.

Pinyon-Juniper Forest Aboveground Biomass

Map of live aboveground tree biomass for a portion of the Great Basin, USA.

Map of annual live aboveground tree biomass (Mg/ha) for pinyon-juniper forests across a representative portion of the Great Basin of the Western USA for the year 2005 at a spatial resolution of 30 meters.

Maps of live tree biomass in pinyon-juniper forests are available for the years 2000-2016.

Harmonized Global Maps of Biomass

Map of biomass carbon density.

Global maps of above and belowground biomass carbon density: (a) aboveground biomass carbon density, (b) belowground biomass carbon density.

Temporally consistent and harmonized global maps of aboveground and belowground biomass carbon density are now available.
