Short summary
We introduce a new method of quantifying time since disturbance and carbon flux across forested landscapes in the Pacific Northwest at a 30m scale by combining remote-sensing-based disturbance year, type, and above-ground biomass with forest inventory data in a carbon modeling framework. Our approach will be applied to forestlands in other regions of the conterminous US to advance a comprehensive monitoring, mapping, and reporting of the carbon consequences of forest change across the US.
