Dataset

Description

Hydrological variables (evapotranspiration, precipitation, runoff, and terrestrial water storage) are distributed through several datasets that do not have the same characteristics (spatial and temporal coverage, spatial and temporal resolution). This dataset aims at providing a coherent gathering of all datasets available as of January 2021, covering at least the period from 2003 to 2014, and from 50°S to 50°N. This file contains: 14 datasets for evapotranspiration (ERA5-Land, FLUXCOM, GLDAS2.2 CLSM2.5, GLDAS2.1 CLSM2.5, GLDAS2.1 NOAH3.6, GLDAS VIC4.1.2, GLDAS2.0 CLSM2.5, GLDAS2.0 NOAH3.6, GLDAS2.0 VIC4.1.2, GLEAM, JRA55, MERRA2, MOD16, and SEBBop) 11 datasets for precipitation (CPC, CRU, ERA5-Land, PGF, GPCC, GPCP, GPM, JRA55, MERRA2, MSWEP, and TRMM) 11 datasets for runoff (ERA5-Land, GLDAS2.2 CLSM2.5, GLDAS2.1 CLSM2.5, GLDAS2.1 NOAH3.6, GLDAS VIC4.1.2, GLDAS2.0 CLSM2.5, GLDAS2.0 NOAH3.6, GLDAS2.0 VIC4.1.2, GRUN, JRA55, and MERRA2) 2 datasets for terrestrial water storage (GRACE CSR mascons, and GRACE JPL mascons) Each dataset is given as the original version (on a regular grid) and also as a post-treated file averaged for 189 river basins (whose borders are also provided).
