COLE (Carbon On-Line Estimator)

The Carbon On-Line Estimator (COLE) is a Java-based program developed to enable examination of forest carbon characteristics of any area of the continental United States. COLE data are based on USDA Forest Service Forest Inventory & Analysis and Resource Planning Assessment data, enhanced by other ecological data.

COLE is a joint project of NCASI and the USDA Forest Service Research Work Unit 4104. Major funding has been awarded through a research grant by USDA Forest Service, Forest Health Monitoring. Additional support is from the USDA Forest Service, Northern Global Change Program.
