Data release for: Spatially explicit reconstruction of post-megafire forest recovery through landscape modeling

October 14, 2020

This data release provides inputs needed to run the LANDIS PRO forest landscape model and the LINKAGES 3.0 ecosystem process model for the area burned by the Black Dragon Fire in northeast China in 1987, and simulation results that underlie figures and analysis in the accompanying publication. The data release includes the fire perimeter of Great Dragon Fire; input data for LINKAGES including soils, landtype, and climate data; initial conditions of stands in the study area before the Great Dragon Fire; and maps of LANDIS PRO output for each model grid cell including total trees, total biomass (Mg/ha), and tree density (trees/ha) in two-year timesteps.
