LBA-ECO CD-37 Secondary Forest Biomass and Age Class, Rondonia, Brazil

Abstract: This data set provides tree age, forest formation, and land cover classification maps, and estimates of landscape-level above-ground live woody biomass (AGLB) for secondary forests in Rondonia, Brazil. The Threshold Age Mapping Algorithm (TAMA) was applied to a densely spaced time series of Landsat images (1975 to 2003) to derive forest type and age classification maps. The AGLB of the secondary forest was estimated by combining the forest classification map with coincident biomass estimates from the Geoscience Laser Altimeter System (GLAS). There are five raster images and three comma-delimited data files with this data set.
