This dataset provides monthly estimates of biomass stocks and land-atmosphere carbon exchange across the western United States at 0.95 degrees longitude x 1.25 degrees latitude grid resolution from 1998 through 2010. The data include outputs from two types of model simulations: (1) a "free" simulation which used Community Land Model (CLM5.0) simulations forced with meteorology appropriate for complex mountainous terrain, and (2) "assimilation" runs using the land surface data assimilation system (CLM5-DART). In assimilation runs, the CLM5 vegetation state is constrained by remotely sensed observations of leaf area index and aboveground biomass, which influenced biomass stocks and carbon fluxes.
