Model Output from the Terrestrial Ecosystem Model for Western Arctic Linkage Experiment (WALE)
These data were obtained by running the Terrestrial Ecosystem Model (TEM) with three different climate data sets over the Western Arctic Linkage Experiment (WALE) domain, which includes Alaska and the Yukon Territory. The carbon fluxes were compared with fluxes from the Biome-BGC model, and the water fluxes were compared with fluxes from the pan-Arctic Water Balance Model (PWBM).
Data coverage is from 1980 through 2001. The data consist of fourteen binary file downloads, containing monthly gridded output in EASE-Grid format. Variables include gross primary production (GPP), net primary productivity (NPP), heterotrophic respiration, carbon flux, evapotranspiration, runoff, and soil moisture.
