Ireland: Carlow1

2005 Funtional Type Land Cover Type: Water

Compare all MODIS Land Cover Types for Carlow1

Current value per hectare: $Insufficient valid data.

This chart shows the dollar value of carbon sequestration by vegetation per hectare per year for Carlow1, based on NPP data. In the most recent year, one hectare of vegetation at this site sequestered sufficient atmospheric carbon to place its vegetation value at $Insufficient valid data., given a sequestration cost of $10 per metric ton. See chart below for previous years' sequestration values.

ValueA=NPP/∑GPP ratio-derived NPP values per Zhang et al. NPP/∑GPP ratio: 0.58

ValueB=NPP per MODIS. See Calculations page for more information.

Graph body = NPP Values A & B, lower graph = NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index)

Carlow1 Fill Value Log

Quality flag data as incorporated in pixel reliability notations results in fill value replacement in source datasets. Fill values (indicating substandard pixel reliability) are disregarded in generating annual averages. Please use caution when source datasets include a substantial number of fill values. For this site's dataset, the following fill value data points were encountered:
