Map of mean aboveground carbon density (ACD) at a resolution of 25 meters for the 481 hectare Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, California, USA. Mapping units are metric tons (megagrams or Mg) of carbon per hectare. A map data value of -9999 indicates missing data. The method combined airborne LiDAR, field plot inventory, and spatial modeling as reported by Dahlin et al. (2012; below). This map represents all woody vegetation with diameter at breast height (DBH) greater than or equal to 5 cm. The map represents the vegetation as imaged in 2007.
The data are provided as a GeoTIFF format (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeoTIFF), and the data and the reference PDF(s) are compressed as a single, self-extracting 7Zip (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/7-Zip) file. When prompted, the password is "caodata" (without quotes).
