CMS: Aboveground Biomass for Mangrove Forest, Zambezi River Delta, Mozambique

This dataset provides several estimates of aboveground biomass from various regressions and allometries for mangrove forest in the Zambezi River Delta, Mozambique. Plot level estimates of aboveground biomass are based on extensive tree biophysical measurements from field campaigns conducted in September and October of 2012 and 2013. Aboveground biomass estimates for the larger area of mangrove coverage within the delta are based on (1) the plot level data and (2) canopy structure data derived from airborne LiDAR surveys in 2014. The high-resolution canopy height model for the delta region derived from the airborne LiDAR data is also included.
