MODIS-derived Forest Radiation Data for Brazil

Average daily net radiation.

Average daily net radiation for the 8-day timestep, 2000-03-29 to 2000-04-06, in the upper Xingu River Basin, Mato Grosso, Brazil, study area.

Three MODIS products were used to derive daily average land surface net radiation for the forests of the upper Xingu River Basin in Mato Grosso, Brazil.

Highlights from the Literature

Asclepias syriaca (common milkweed)

Daymet daily surface weather and climatological summaries have been cited in nearly 300 peer-reviewed articles. Read about how this popular data product is used in research.

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.

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.
