This dataset provides 30 m gridded estimates of aboveground biomass density (AGBD), forest canopy height, and tree canopy coverage for the New England Region of the U.S., including the state of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island, for the nominal year 2015. It is based on inputs from 1 m resolution Leaf-off LiDAR data collected from 2010 through 2015, high-resolution leaf-on agricultural imagery, and FIA plot-level measurements. Canopy height and tree cover were derived directly from LiDAR data while AGBD was estimated by statistical models that link remote sensing data and FIA plots at the pixel level. Error in AGBD was calculated at the 90% confidence interval. This approach can directly contribute to the formation of a cohesive forest carbon accounting system at national and even international levels, especially via future integrations with NASA's spaceborne LiDAR missions.
