Title: Pan-European Map of Forest Biomass Increment

Description

This is a pan-European map of forest biomass increment. The map was implemented using MODIS GPP data (NASA Product MOD17A3) adjusted with GPP data derived from upscaling FLUXNET observations using the Model Tree Ensemble (MTE) technique (Jung et al., 2011) to derive a 1 km resolution woody biomass increment map. The map was validated using regional information from the most recent publicly available National Forest Inventories data of several European countries.
