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.

Carbon Sequestration Potential for Maryland

Maximum forest aboveground biomass

Carbon sequestration potential within the state of Maryland, defined as 95% of maximum forest aboveground biomass (Mg/ha), simulated after 500 years of succession.

A new dataset maps the aboveground biomass of Maryland's forests and estimates their potential for future carbon sequestration.

Introduction to Geospatial Analysis in R

Forest disturbance by fire and insect infestation

The webinar featured data on the locations of forest disturbance by fire (red) and insect infestation (yellow) across northwestern USA between 2006 and 2010.

The recording of our NASA Earthdata webinar on "Introduction to Geospatial Analysis in R" is now available.
