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.

Forest Biomass Maps Derived from Disturbance History

Map of biomass.

Biomass (Mg ha-1) for the northern Minnesota site.

Six Landsat focus sites were used to produce disturbance history and forest biomass maps.

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.
