Hello,

I am estimating the Current/Future Stored Carbon (Mg) using 30m land cover data. When the manual says that the output is Mg per pixel, does this equate to the value per 900m2 (e.g., the square area of a 30m pixel) or per m2?

The answer will help me calculate the emission offset and do some raster algebra, where I have a separate raster with values per m2 (also 30m pixel resolution).

Best,

Gabriela

Hello Gabriela,

Although your question does not state the context, we assume you are using the Carbon Storage and Sequestration tab on the Ecosystem Services Modeler. If it says “per pixel” you can assume that it has taken the area of the pixel into consideration. Thus it is literally a measure of quantity per pixel. If you wish to express the value relative to area, then simply divide the value by the area of the pixel in the units you wish to use. Thus, if the pixel has a value of 10 and your resolution was 30 m, then the value per m2 would be 10 / (30 x 30) = 0.011.
