Abstract: The aim of our work was the development of a methodology for the spatial assessment of forest biomass increment at the pan-European level. To this aim, we used MODIS GPP data (NASA Product MOD17A3) adjusted with GPP data derived from upscaling of FLUXNET observations using the Model Tree Ensemble (MTE) technique (Jung et al., 2011) to derive a 1 km resolution biomass increment map. This map was then validated using regional information from the most recent National Forest Inventories of several countries, highlighting a good agreement between estimated and observed data. The resulting map can serve as a useful baseline for a number of applications dealing with potential supply of energy from forest in Europe, including mobilisation scenarios that consider current environmental, technical and social constraints.
