Data Set Overview
|Data set||CMS: Mangrove Canopy Height from High-resolution Stereo Image Pairs, Mozambique, 2012|
|Project||Carbon Monitoring System (CMS)|
This data set provides canopy height estimates for mangrove forests at 0.6 x 0.6 m resolution in three study sites located in southeastern Mozambique, Africa: two sites on Inhaca Island and one in the Maputo Elephant Reserve, located in the southern province of Maputo for September, 2012. The estimates were derived from WorldView1 (WV-1) very high resolution (VHR) stereo images processed using the Ames Stereo Pipeline (ASP) digital surface model (DSM) tool.

Carbon Monitoring System (CMS): The NASA Carbon Monitoring System (CMS) is designed to make significant contributions in characterizing, quantifying, understanding, and predicting the evolution of global carbon sources and sinks through improved monitoring of carbon stocks and fluxes. The System will use the full range of NASA satellite observations and modeling/analysis capabilities to establish the accuracy, quantitative uncertainties, and utility of products for supporting national and international policy, regulatory, and management activities. CMS will maintain a global emphasis while providing finer scale regional information, utilizing space-based and surface-based data and will rapidly initiate generation and distribution of products both for user evaluation and to inform near-term policy development and planning.
