Baseline and Projected Future Carbon Storage and Greenhouse-Gas Fluxes in Ecosystems of the Western United States

Resource Type: 
A USGS comprehensive national assessment of carbon (C) storage and flux (flow) and the fuxes of other greenhouse gases (GHGs, including carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and nitrous oxide (N2O)). These carbon and GHG variables were examined in the Western United States for major terrestrial ecosystems (forests, grasslands/shrublands, agricultural lands, and wetlands) and aquatic ecosystems (rivers, streams, lakes, estuaries, and coastal waters) in two time periods: baseline (the first half of the 2000s) and future (projections from baseline to 2050).
