Global 1-degree Maps of Forest Area, Carbon Stocks, and Biomass, 1950-2010
Entry ID: Global_Biomass_1950-2010_1296_1


Summary
Abstract: This data set provides global forest area, forest growing stock, and forest biomass data at 1-degree resolution for the period 1950-2010. The data set is based on a compilation of forest area and growing stock data reported in international assessments performed by FAO, MCPFE (now Forest Europe), and UNECE. Data of different assessments are to the extent possible harmonized to reflect both forest area and other wooded land, to be comparable between countries and assessments.
