Summary

These datasets are continuous parameter grids (CPG) of permeability (and impermeability) of surface geology in the Pacific Northwest. Source data come from work by Chris Konrad, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), and geologic map databases produced by USGS scientists.

Purpose

These Continuous Parameter Grid (CPG) rasters were generated as inputs to the PROSPER model, predicting the probability of streamflow permanence throughout the Pacific Northwest. Each model predictor variable (parameter grid) was converted from its original spatial form into a CPG, which combines the discrete values with a flow accumulation raster, thereby converting the predictor values into a spatially moving average format.
