Abstract
This project aimed to produce the first wall-to-wall estimate of C stocks in plants and soils of Canada at 250 m spatial resolution. This dataset contains the map with total C stored in plants of forested areas in Canada (AGB, BGB and dead plants) in kg/m² and C stock uncertainty. To estimate the C stored in plants of forest areas, we used 47,967 ground measurements of AGB measures and 58 covariates mainly composed of optical data, terrain parameters, structural parameters (e.g., SAR data, clump index, canopy heights – generated from satellite LiDAR- included in the other dataset), soil type map and radiation flux data. Different models were trained using a recu...
