Hectares (ha) of Aboveground Forest Biomass Across North America

Figure 9.1


This figure appears in chapter 9 of the Second State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR2): A Sustained Assessment Report report.

This comprehensive map combines four independently developed maps of biomass for Canada, Alaska, the conterminous United States, and Mexico (Beaudoin et al., 2014; Blackard et al., 2008; Wilson et al., 2013; MREDD+ Alliance 2013). A common legend, map projection, and spatial resolution of 250 m were applied to the individual maps with no attempt to harmonize the methods used for each of the original map products. Biomass of nonforest areas is masked by including only landcover and land-use categories 1–6 from the North American Land Change Monitoring System (NALCMS 2018). Base years of the original maps are Canada, 2001; Alaska, 2004; conterminous United States, 2000–2009; and Mexico, 2007. [Figure source: Kevin McCullough, U.S. Forest Service.
