A spatially comprehensive, hydrologic model-based data set for Mexico, the U.S., and southern Canada, 1969 (NCEI Accession 0139362)

browse graphicPreview graphic
A data set of simulated hydrologic fluxes and states from the Variable Infiltration Capacity (VIC) model, gridded to a 1/16 degree (~6km) resolution that spans the entire country of Mexico, the conterminous U.S. (CONUS), and regions of Canada south of 53 degrees N for the period 1950-2013. Because of the consistent gridding methodology, the current product reduces transboundary discontinuities making it suitable for estimating large-scale hydrologic phenomena.
