These datasets are continuous parameter grids (CPG) of normal monthly mean evapotranspiration data for March through September, averaged across all years, 2000 through 2015, in the Pacific Northwest. Source evapotranspiration data was produced using the operational Simplified Surface Energy Balance (SSEBop) model.

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.
