FIA Bole Forest Biomass (Image Service)

dataset
posted on 2024-06-05, 12:49 authored by U.S. Forest Service
The U.S. has been providing national-scale estimates of forest carbon stocks and stock change to meet United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change reporting requirements for years. Through application of a nearest-neighbor imputation approach, mapped estimates of forest biomass density were developed for the contiguous United States using the annual forest inventory conducted by the USDA Forest Service Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program, MODIS satellite imagery, and ancillary geospatial datasets. This data product would contain the following 7 raster maps: Aboveground Forest Biomass, Belowground Forest Biomass, Forest Tree Bole Biomass, Forest Sapling Biomass, Forest Stump Biomass, Forest Top Biomass, Woodland Specias Biomass. All layers have a 250 meter pixel resolution and values represent biomass pounds per acre.  The paper on which these maps are based may be found here: https://dx.doi.org/10.2737/RDS-2013-0004  Access to full metadata and other information can be accessed here: https://dx.doi.org/10.2737/RDS-2013-0004
