BLM REA COP 2010 Potential Evapotranspiration (2045-2060) Simulated by MAPSS using RegCM3 Climate with GFDL Projections as Boundary Conditions (Western US)

Summary

Potential Evapotranspiration simulated by the biogeography model MAPSS using RegCM3 climate with GFDL projections as boundary conditions. Units are millimeters of water. MAPSS (Mapped Atmosphere-Plant-Soil System) is a static biogeography model that projects potential vegetation distribution and hydrological flows on a grid (http://www.databasin.org/climate-center/features/mapss-model). MAPSS has been used widely for various climate change assessments including the 2000 National Assessment Synthesis Team's report. MAPSS uses long term, average monthly climate data (mean monthly temperature, vapor pressure, wind speed, and precipitation) as well as soils information (texture, depth). Based on a set of climatic thresholds, the model [...]
