Research Paper: High-Resolution forest carbon mapping for climate mitigation baselines over the RGGI region, USA

This article, published in 2021, details the results of an aboveground biomass analysis which built upon efforts to link airborne lidar data, National Agricultural Imagery Program (NAIP) imagery, and USDA Forest Service Inventory and Analysis (FIA) plot measurements through predictive algorithms. This research generated a 30-by-30 meter resolution “map” of aboveground carbon stock across 11 states in the Eastern US.
