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.

Temporal Dynamics of Lake Area in the Arctic

Four ABoVE study sites.

Near-daily CubeSat imagery was collected within four large regions across the ABoVE study area. Timeseries of lake area were derived from the CubeSat imagery for more than 80,000 lakes in these regions.

Near-daily CubeSat imagery provides information on the seasonal dynamics of more than 80,000 lakes.

Tropical Forest Biomass in Gabon

Aboveground biomass.

Aboveground biomass mapped at 0.25 ha resolution for the Mondah study site in Gabon, West Africa.

The AfriSAR campaign produced maps of aboveground biomass for four forested sites in Gabon based on field data and LiDAR scans.

Greenhouse Gases from Arctic-CAP

Monitoring carbon dynamics during the 2017 growing season.

Arctic-CAP flight lines (orange) sampled Arctic and boreal regions of Alaska and Canada. Pins mark the locations of vertical profiles that were repeatedly acquired during the 2017 growing season.

Atmospheric carbon and methane concentrations were measured during the 2017 Arctic Carbon Aircraft Profile (Arctic-CAP) flights throughout Alaska and western Canada.
