Description

This dataset provides 90 m estimates of forest aboveground biomass (Mg/ha) for nominal 2011 and projections of carbon sequestration potential for 11 states in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) domain. The RGGI is a cooperative, market-based effort among States in the eastern United States. Estimated biomass and sequestration potential were computed using the Ecosystem Demography (ED) model. The ED Model integrates several key data including climate variables from Daymet and MERRA2 products; physical soil and hydraulic properties from Probabilistic Remapping of SSURGO (POLARIS) and CONUS-SOIL; land cover characteristics from airborne lidar, the National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP), and the National Land Cover Database (NLCD); and vegetation parameters from the Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) Program.
