Research Institute Compiles Biomass Inventory

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Scientists at the Woods Hole Research Center are producing a high-resolution National Biomass and Carbon Dataset for the year 2000, the first inventory of its kind. Through a combination of NASA satellite datasets, topographic survey data, land use/land cover data, and extensive forest inventory data collected by the U.S. Forest Service, this millennium dataset will serve as an invaluable baseline for carbon stock assessment and flux modeling in the United States.
