China’s planted forest maps from 1990 to 2020

Tree planting has been suggested as a potentially effective solution for mitigating climate change. China has implemented the world’s largest afforestation and reforestation project since the 1970s, but high-resolution maps of China’s planted forests remain unavailable. In this study, we explored the use of multi-source remote sensing images and crowdsourced samples to produce the first high-resolution […]

Global forest woody residence time in 2004

Global forest woody residence time by random forest method 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. […]

China forest AGB map(2019)

Forest aboveground biomass (AGB) estimation is crucial for carbon cycle studies and climate change mitigation actions. However, because of limitations in timely and reliable forestry surveys and high-resolution remote sensing data, producing a fine resolution and spatial continuous forest AGB map of China is challenging. Here, we combined 4789 ground-truth AGB measurements and multisource remote […]

Benchmark dataset for airborne lidar scanning data filtering in forested environments

Data description: Airborne laser scanning (ALS) data is one of the most commonly used data for terrain products generation. Filtering ground points is a prerequisite step for ALS data processing. Because canopy cover and terrain slope are various in forested environments, filtering in forested environments is more challenging than filtering in other environments, such as […]

Global mangrove forest AGB map

Mangrove forest ecosystems are distributed at the land–sea interface in tropical and subtropical regions and play an important role in carbon cycles and biodiversity. Accurately mapping global mangrove aboveground biomass (AGB) will help us understand how mangrove ecosystems are affected by the impacts of climatic change and human activities. Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) techniques […]

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 […]
