Corrected SRTM DEM

SRTM (shuttle radar topography mission) DEM (digital elevation model) is a near-global terrain product with high accuracy, and has been widely used in many researches, such as hydrological survey, geological hazards assessment, and ecological protection. However, it has been proved that SRTM DEM is systematic higher than the real ground truth in vegetation regions, as […]

Global forest woody residence time

Woody residence time is an important parameter that expresses the balance between mature forest recruitment/growth and mortality. Using field data collected from the literature, our group explored the global forest τw and investigated its influence on model simulations of aboveground biomass (AGB) at a global scale. We estimated the global 1 km τw using a random forest […]

Global forest AGB map

Global forest ecosystems form a large carbon pool, and are a critical component of the global carbon cycle. Accurate estimations of global forest aboveground biomass (AGB) will improve understanding of global carbon dynamics and help quantify anthropogenic carbon emissions. Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) techniques have been proven to accurately capture both horizontal and vertical […]

China forest AGB map

The global forest ecosystem, which acts as a large carbon sink, plays an important role in modeling the global carbon balance. An accurate estimation of the total forest carbon stock in the above ground biomass (AGB) is therefore necessary to improve our understanding of carbon dynamics, especially against the background of global climate change. In […]
