A model of forest floor carbon mass for United States forest types.

Research Paper NE-722. Newtown Square, PA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Northeastern Research Station, Newtown Square PA. 37 p.

Abstract:

Includes a large set of published values of forest floor mass and develop large-scale estimates of carbon mass according to region and forest type. Estimates of average forest floor carbon mass per hectare of forest applied to a 1997 summary forest inventory, sum to 4.5 Gt carbon stored in forests of the 48 contiguous United States.
