This dataset, from Elaine
Matthews of NASA, contains six databases of global 1-degree data
for use in climate studies. The six databases are a vegetation
dataset representing natural vegetation, a land-use set
defining the areal extent of cultivated land, and four surface
albedo datasets for snow-free conditions (except for permanently
snow-covered continental ice) for January, April, July, and

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the https://makedatacount.org/ 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.
