NACP: Forest Carbon Stocks, Fluxes and Productivity Estimates, Western USA, 1979-2099

This dataset contains annual estimates of carbon stocks, fluxes, and productivity over forested land in 11 states of the western USA (Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming). The estimates were produced from multiple simulations using the Community Land Model (v4.5) with different climate forcing data and prescribed harvest rates. Business as usual (BAU) scenarios were run to ensure that the simulations represented present-day stand ages. The estimates span two modeled time periods, 1979-2014 and 2015-2099, at 1/24-degree (4 km x 4 km) resolution. Variables included are gross primary production (GPP), net ecosystem exchange (NEE), net ecosystem productivity (NEP), net primary production (NPP), autotrophic respiration (RA), heterotrophic respiration (RH), transpiration factor, aboveground live tree carbon, carbon loss from fire, allocation to stem carbon, and burned area fraction over forested areas of the western USA.
