CO2 Flux for the Northern Gulf of Mexico

pCO2 for the northern Gulf of Mexico.

Monthly composite images of satellite-derived pCO2 for the northern Gulf of Mexico, corresponding to each of the cruises for which observational data were acquired. Black pixels in the images correspond to areas that were masked (e.g., land, clouds), and the dotted lines represent the 45 and 200 m isobaths.

Monthly estimates of ocean surface pCO2 and air-sea flux of CO2 are available from NASA's Carbon Monitoring System.

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.

Mangrove Forests in River Deltas

Mangrove extent, gain, and loss.

Map of a portion of Peruvian coast showing areas of mangrove extent, gain, and loss from the year 2000 to 2016.

Maps of mangrove forest extent and change is available for river deltas in six countries: Gabon, Jamaica, Mozambique, Peru, Senegal, and Tanzania.

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.
