Ecosystem Functional Types Across the USA

Ecosystem functional type (EFT) categories

Spatial distribution of 64 ecosystem functional type (EFT) categories across the conterminous United States (CONUS). For each pixel, the dominant EFT is reported.

New data from the Carbon Monitoring System classifies ecosystems based on their similar ecosystem functioning.

Soil Carbon Stocks for Tidal Wetlands

soil carbon in the Mississippi River delta

Estimated soil carbon stocks (using model results) throughout the Mississippi River delta in Louisiana. Cooler colors (blues and greens) indicate higher soil carbon concentrations.

Researchers with NASA's Carbon Monitoring System estimated the amount of carbon stored in the soil in tidal wetlands of the United States.

Vegetation and Biomass in Tidal Marshes

Map of tidal marsh green vegetation, non-vegetation, and open water at 1m resolution for the Mississippi River Delta site in Terrebonne and St. Mary Parishes, Louisiana.

Three new datasets from NASA's Carbon Monitoring System provide high-resolution maps of six US tidal marshes.

Column-average CO2 Concentrations from ACT-America

ACT-America column-average carbon dioxide concentrations

Column-average CO2 measured during the first 20 minutes of flight off the coast of New Jersey on July 11, 2016, for the ACT-America mission.

A new dataset provides remotely-sensed column-average carbon dioxide concentrations measured over the Eastern US.

CO2 Concentrations in the Boston Area

Map of measurement stations in the Boston network and 2014 average afternoon CO2 emissions.

Measurement stations in the Boston area including two urban sites: Boston University (BU) and Copley Square (COP), and three boundary sites: Harvard Forest (HF), Canaan (CA), and Martha's Vineyard (MVY). Blue shading represents 2014 average afternoon CO2 emissions. See the dataset user guide for more details.

A new dataset from the North American Carbon Program provides atmospheric measurements of CO2 and model estimates of urban emissions at sites near Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
