This dataset provides estimates of mangrove extent for 2016, and mangrove change (gain or loss) from 2000 to 2016, in major river delta regions of six countries: Gabon, Jamaica, Mozambique, Peru, Senegal, and Tanzania. For mangrove extent, a combination of Landsat 8 OLI, Sentinel-1 C-SAR, and Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) elevation data were used to create country-wide maps of mangrove landcover extent at a 30 m resolution. For mangrove change, the global mangrove map for 2000 (Giri et al., 2010) was used as the baseline. Normalized Difference Vegetation Indices (NDVI) were calculated for every cloud- and shadow-free pixel in the Landsat 5 TM, Landsat 7 ETM+, and Landsat 8 OLI collection and used to create an NDVI anomaly from 2000 to 2016. Areas of change (loss or gain) occurred at the extremes of the cumulative anomalies.
