Forest Inventory and Analysis Forest Litter Carbon (Image Service)

Metadata Updated: June 21, 2023

Through application of a nearest-neighbor imputation approach, mapped estimates of forest carbon 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 contains the following 8 raster maps: total forest carbon in all stocks, live tree aboveground forest carbon, live tree belowground forest carbon, forest down dead carbon, forest litter carbon, forest standing dead carbon, forest soil organic carbon, and forest understory carbon. The paper on which these maps are based may be found here: https://dx.doi.org/10.2737/RDS-2013-0004Access to full metadata and other information can be accessed here: https://dx.doi.org/10.2737/RDS-2013-0004
