Two example locations where GLAS lidar profiles were matched with forest simulations. a, b left GLAS lidar profile (red) and best matching simulated profiles (blue for best relative overlap, light blue for the other 49 simulated profiles with highest overlap). The relative overlap of all profiles is >90%. a, b right Aboveground biomass (AGB) probability distribution for 50 simulated profiles and its coefficient of variation (CV). The CV is further denoted as εAGB, an uncertainty index that describes the structure- and species-induced uncertainty of AGB. c Mean AGB (gray triangles indicate the locations of the two example profiles.) and d εAGB-derived for every GLAS shot. Source data are provided as a Source Data file
