Description

This dataset provides 30-meter gridded estimates of aboveground biomass (AGB), forest canopy height, and canopy coverage for Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Delaware in 2011. Leaf-off LiDAR data were combined with high-resolution leaf-on agricultural imagery in a model-based stratification that was used to select 848 sampling sites for AGB estimation. Field-based estimates were then related to LiDAR height and volume metrics through random forest regression models across three physiographic regions. Spatial errors were estimated at the pixel level using standard prediction intervals to assess the accuracy of the modeling approach. Estimates of biomass were further validated against the permanent network of FIA plots and compared with existing coarse resolution national biomass maps.
