Predicted spatially contiguous solar-induced chlorophyll fluorescence (SIF) across the United States for August 1 - 16, 2015. Areas of high SIF are in red, and areas of low SIF are in blue. Agricultural areas, like the U.S. Midwestern corn belt, often have a high rate of photosynthetic production which results in high SIF.
High-resolution, global, estimates of SIF based on data from the OCO-2 satellite serve as a proxy for rates of terrestrial photosynthesis.
Spatial distribution of PhenoCam data across ecological regions of North America. Background map illustrates USA Environmental Protection Agency Level I Ecoregions. Data counts have been aggregated to a spatial resolution of 4i, and the size of each circle corresponds to the number of years of data.
A new version of the PhenoCam vegetation phenology data products is now available.
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.
