Description

This dataset provides estimates of aboveground biomass and spatially explicit uncertainty from 53 airborne LiDAR surveys of locations throughout California between 2005 and 2014. Aboveground biomass was estimated by performing individual tree crown detection and applying a customized "remote sensing aware" allometric equation to these individual trees. Aboveground biomass estimates and their uncertainties for each study area are provided in per-tree and gridded format. The canopy height models used for the tree detection and biomass estimation are also provided.
