Data Extent

Northeast US Blue Carbon Rasters

This data set includes rasters of tidal marsh soil properties in the Northeast US for the purpose of blue carbon accounting. Mapping products cover estuarine and emergent wetland classes in the National Wetlands Inventory.

Resources in this dataset:

  • Resource Title: Northeast Blue Carbon Raster Map - LOI
    File Name: Northeast_marsh_LOI.7z
    Resource Description: This raster file provides soil organic matter (% LOI) estimates for tidal marshes in the Northeast US.

  • Resource Title: Northeast Blue Carbon Raster Map - BD
    File Name: Northeast_marsh_BD.7z
    Resource Description: This raster based data product provides soil dry bulk density estimates for tidal marshes in the Northeast US.

  • Resource Title: README file for Northeast Blue Carbon Rasters
    File Name: README_Northeast_blue_carbon_rasters_LOI_BD.txt
    Resource Description: Brief description of the raster properties and methods by which they were created to model soil organic matter, soil dry bulk density, and carbon density for the Northeast US. See Teng et al (in prep, 2023) for more details on the model development.
