The model LAVESI (Kruse et al. 2016) was updated (Kruse 2023) and forced with historical and future climate forcing for 3 simulation repeats. This data set uses the data set of Kruse (2023) and applies a threshold of 0.68 km m-2 to differentiate forested areas according to the 2018 field inventories (Shevtsova et al., 2021). In this data set the total forest cover was summed up and the percent of total available areas is presented for the three climate forcings RCP 2.6, 4.5 and 8.5 and each complemented with a hypothetical cooling scenario from year 2300 CE onwards. The data provided is from years 1800, 1860, 1900, 1990, 2000 and in 5-year steps until 3000 CE and presents the mean over the three repeats of the sum of AGB of the whole study region: extent: 640008.2, 649998.2, 7475006, 7494716 m (xmin, xmax, ymin, ymax). Format: csv, with headers 1-year, Year in CE, 2-average percent forests cover for the study region, 3-upper and 4-lower, is the minimum and maximum value of the three simulations, 5-RCP, is the RCP scenario, 6-Cooling, contains in case of the cooling scenario the string “Cooling”.
