Nujiang River Water Resources Temporal and Spatial Distribution Data Set (1998-2017)

Nujiang River Water Resources Temporal and Spatial Distribution Data Set (1998-2017)

This data is generated based on meteorological observation data, hydrological station data, combined with various assimilation data and remote sensing data, through the preparation of the Qinghai Tibet Plateau multi-level hydrological model system WEB-DHM (distributed hydrological model based on water and energy balance) coupling snow, glacier and frozen soil physical processes. The time resolution is monthly, the spatial resolution is 5km, and the original data format is ASCII text format, Data types include grid runoff and evaporation (if evaporation is less than 0, it means condensation; if runoff is less than 0, it means precipitation is less than evaporation in the month). If the asc cannot be opened normally in arcmap, please top the first 5 lines of the asc file.

File naming and required software

Data is in ASCII text format. Data naming method: observation item+year, month and day, such as Acc_ Q.199801.asc。
The unit of runoff is mm, and the unit of evaporation is mm, which can be opened with software such as arcgis.
