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.
Daymet provides high-resolution surface meteorology data for North America. The figure shows annual data for the year 2018; Left: Mean maximum daily temperature, Middle: Total precipitation, Right: Mean minimum daily temperature. Daymet data is archived and distributed by the ORNL DAAC.
Daymet weather and climate data for North America are now available for the years 1980 - 2018.
Soil Adjusted Vegetation Index (SAVI) for a site on the Seward Peninsula, Alaska collected on August 14, 2018. SAVI is similar to NDVI, but it suppresses the effects of soil pixels and it uses a canopy background adjustment factor. The reflectance data used to calculate SAVI was collected by the AVIRIS-NG instrument on a flight over the Seward Peninsula, Alaska, on August 14, 2018.
New AVIRIS-NG data from the 2018 ABoVE airborne campaign and an accompanying data processing tutorial are now available.
