This resource is part of the publication by Harris et al. (2021) "Global maps of twenty-first century forest carbon fluxes.". It represents "the greenhouse gas emissions arising from stand-replacing forest disturbances that occurred in each modelled year (megagrams CO2 emissions/ha, between 2001 and 2021). Emissions include all relevant ecosystem carbon pools (aboveground biomass, belowground biomass, dead wood, litter, soil) and greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4, N2O)." The area unit that is downloaded here corresponds to the "megagrams of CO2 emissions/pixel" layer, in order to support the calculation of area-wise emissions.


A global tiled raster resource available for all land areas.


There are no arguments users need to specify. However, users should note that the spatial extent for this dataset does not totally cover the same extent as the treecover2000 and lossyear resources by Hansen et al. (2013). A missing value (NA) will be inserted for greenhouse gas emissions for areas where no data is available.
