Gridded Soil Moisture and Land Surface Evapotranspiration Global Fields for Climate Models
Entry ID: MINTZ_WALKER_SOIL_AND_EVAPO


Summary
Abstract: Monthly fields of soil moisture are widely used in numerical weather
predictions and climate simulations with general circulation models
(GCMs). Gridded global fields of normal monthly soil moisture and
land surface evapotranspiration were derived with a simple water
budget model that has precipitation and potential evapotranspiration
as inputs. Precipitation was ... View entire text
