Alaska Thermokarst Model Tanana Flats Land Cover

The Tanana Flats (263,759 ha) are located south of Fairbanks, Alaska, within a lowland basin between the Alaska Range and the Tanana River. This lowland vegetation map (30 x 30m resolution) is composed of five classes:

Legend:

value | class name

1 | open water
2 | wetlands (floating mat fen meadows and scattered bogs)
3 | shrub/scrub (alder/ericaceous shrub-scrub)
4 | paper birch forest
5 | black spruce forest

An accuracy assessment is included.
