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.

Carbon Sequestration Potential for Maryland

Maximum forest aboveground biomass

Carbon sequestration potential within the state of Maryland, defined as 95% of maximum forest aboveground biomass (Mg/ha), simulated after 500 years of succession.

A new dataset maps the aboveground biomass of Maryland's forests and estimates their potential for future carbon sequestration.

Biomass of Boreal Forests in Eurasia

Eurasia boreal forests aboveground carbon estimates

Eurasia boreal forests aboveground carbon estimates (Neigh et al., 2013).

LiDAR measurements were used in a series of models to estimate aboveground biomass (AGB) across the boreal forest biome of western and eastern Eurasia.
