Evaluating Carbon Stocks in Canada

This interactive map allows users to find out how much carbon is stored in a particular area. Select a polygon shape and draw an area on the map to determine the total carbon stock for that area, which is displayed in the accompanying pop-up.

This map is currently at a 10km resolution. Users can also download data at a 250m resolution for more refined estimates.


This analysis was completed by Sothe et al. (2022). The accompanying journal article is published in Global Biogeochemical Cycles (DOI: 10.1029/2021GB007213) and the data can be accessed online.
