NASA Data Helps Researcher Understand Coastal Mangrove Forests

Selfie of Dr. David Lagomasino in the field.

Dr. David Lagomasino uses satellite, airborne, drone, and ground measurements to identify areas of coastal resilience and vulnerability.

Dr. David Lagomasino uses NASA data to study how the Earth's landscape responds to changes caused by natural events and rapid urban expansion.

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.

Comparative Soil Organic Carbon for Mexico and USA

Map of soil organic carbon across the USA and Mexico.

Soil organic carbon (SOC) for 0-30 cm topsoil layer in kg SOC/m2 at 250-m resolution across Mexico and the conterminous USA (CONUS) for the period 1991-2010.

Two sets of estimated soil organic carbon and uncertainties are available at a 250 m resolution.

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.

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.
