Blue Carbon model: possible to supply carbon storage rates as raster?

I have a raster showing the variation in carbon accumulation rates of a single habitat type over a large area. Likewise, I have a raster with different starting values of C. I am trying to identify hotspots for C sequestration. Is it possible to use these raster to specify pixel-specific starting C stock and accumulation rates instead of assigning the whole habitat type a single rate in the transient and initial C table? It would produce more realistic results.

    Hi @Mon, sorry about the delay here!  There is not currently a way to provide a spatially-explicit raster of carbon accumulation rates or storage for the Coastal Blue Carbon model ... the way to do this at the moment would be to assign a unique landcover code per accumulation rate or stock.
