Global Mangrove Loss Extent, Land Cover Change, and Loss Drivers, 2000-2016

L. Goldberg, D. Lagomasino, N. Thomas & T. Fatoyinbo
This dataset provides estimates of the extent of mangrove loss, land cover change, and its anthropogenic or climatic drivers in three time periods: 2000-2005, 2005-2010, and 2010-2016. Landsat-based Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) anomalies were used to determine loss extent in each period. The drivers of mangrove loss were determined by examining land cover changes using a random forest machine learning technique that considered change from mangrove to wet soil, dry soil, and water at...
