Vegetation/Ecosystem Modeling and Analysis Project (VEMAP) Elevation and Grid cell area
Entry ID: EOSWEBSTER_VEMAP_GEOG


Summary
Abstract: The VEMAP Reference Geography Dataset contains the following variables: elevation, area, and percent land area for each VEMAP grid-cell. Elevation is the mean grid cell elevation (.5 deg x .5 deg) in meters, and area is in km^2 and percent of area that is land within the VEMAP study area.

Data provided by the Vegetation/Ecosystem Mapping and Analysis Project (VEMAP) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) are gridded monthly time series climate data for the Conterminous United States at 0.5 x 0.5 degree spatial resolution.

Use Constraints
Use of the VEMAP dataset is subject to the following guidelines
and restrictions:

(1) Users may confer with the NCAR VEMAP Data Group to ensure
that the intended application of the dataset is consistent
with the generation and limitations of the data.

(2) To help us identify dataset errors or inconsistencies, we
request that users contact the NCAR VEMAP Data Group regarding
problems with data files, data access, or the dataset's representation
of climate. For problems with data access or file format, please
refer to &http://www.cgd.ucar.edu/vemap/contacts.html&

(3) Credit in publications resulting from the use of the VEMAP2
data will be given (a) by citation of VEMAP data set
(http://eos-earthdata.sr.unh.edu) and appropriate VEMAP data
papers (&http://www.cgd.ucar.edu/vemap/acknowledgments2.html&)
and (b) by acknowledgement of VEMAP sponsors (NASA Earth Science
Enterprise, EPRI, and the USDA Forest Service Global Change
Program) and the VEMAP Data Group (T. Kittel, D.
Schimel, A. Royle, N. Rosenbloom, H. Fisher, S. Aulenbach,
and C. Kaufman, NCAR, and C. Daly, Oregon State University) for
access to the data.
