Soil Organic Carbon Estimates for Mexico

Map of Mexico's soil organic carbon.

(A) Digital map of soil organic carbon (kg/m2) at 1 m depth and 90 m spatial resolution. The black and blue colored areas are urban areas and water bodies. (B) An area in northern Mexico illustrating the level of detail achieved by mapping across 90 m grids.

Estimates of soil organic carbon are now available from Mexico at a 90 meter resolution.

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.

Historical and Future Leaching from the Mississippi River Basin

Distribution map of mean dissolved inorganic carbon leaching.

Spatial distribution of mean dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) leaching (g c/m2/yr) in the 2090s estimated by S(ALL) simulation experiment (including future climate, elevated CO2, and land use changes). Climate change scenarios were derived from three climate models named CCSM3 (panels a and b), ECHAM (c and d), and CCCMA (e and f) under high (A2) and low (B1) emission scenarios, respectively.

New data from the Carbon Monitoring System (CMS) offers insights into how environmental factors affect the dynamics of leaching.

Predicted Annual Soil Respiration from the Carbon Monitoring System

Global map of annual soil respiration.

A global map of predicted annual soil respiration (Rs) at 1 km spatial resolution created by applying the QRF model to gridded covariates. Right is a plot of the latitudinal mean predicted annual Rs.

A machine learning approach was used to derive the predicted annual soil respiration and uncertainty at a 1 km spatial resolution.

Amazonia Forest Canopy Structure from LiDAR

Map of Para, Brazil.

Bounding boxes for LiDAR tiles from surveys over western Para, Brazil, are depicted in Google Earth from the KMZ companion file. Each feature in the KMZ provides key metadata about the corresponding tile.

LiDAR surveys over forest research sites across the Amazon rainforest in Brazil are available.
