Northern Hemisphere Biome- and Process-Specific Changes in Forest Area and Gross Merchantable Volume: 1890-1990, CDIAC/DB1017
Entry ID: CDIAC_DB1017

Abstract: The database DB1017 consists of annual values (1890 through 1990) of
the areal extent (Ha) and gross merchantable (wood) volume (GMV in m3)
of depletion and accrual processes in Northern Hemisphere boreal and
temperate forests. The data files cover six geographic regions:

(1) Alaska,
(2) Canada,
(3) Europe,
(4) Former Soviet Union,
(5) ... View entire text

Quality One of the roles of the Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center
(CDIAC) is to quality assure (QA) data. The QA process is an
important component of the value-added concept of ensuring accurate,
usable information for researchers, because data received by CDIAC are
rarely in condition for immediate distribution, regardless ... View entire text
