Terrestrial Water Budget Data Archive

| DOI: 10.5065/QTDE-MD26

The dataset authors have created a terrestrial water budget data archive on a 1-degree grid. They identified 13332 global stations with complete records and created 30-year (1950-1979) climatological means for each month of the year for air temperature, precipitation, evaporation, soil moisture, and snow cover. These monthly climatological means were then interpolated to the 1-degree gridpoints. This data set contains both the gridpoint individual station data.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
