This metadata record describes the annual average number of occurrences of dry and wet events during the 30-year period 1981 – 2010 for the conterminous United States. A wet event is defined as a period when the number of consecutive days with precipitation equals or exceeds 1 millimeter. A dry event is defined as a period when the number of consecutive days with precipitation equals 0 millimeters. The source data was produced and acquired from DAYMET (2018) and is presented here as a 1-kilometer resolution GeoTIFF file.

Dead and downed wood in any forest serves an important ecological function with regards to decomposition and nutrient cycling in forest ecosystems. It also provides critical habitat for many reptile and amphibian species, such as the red-backed salamander (Plethodon cinereus), in addition to providing an important food source for insects and detritivores upon which many other species in the system depend. The GCPO LCC Integrated Science Agenda (ISA) targets density of down wood around one 6’ dead/down log of ≥8” dbh per acre, essentially saying that on every acre there needs to be at least one sizable down log. The U.S. Forest Service (USFS) Forest Inventory and Analysis program does not collect plot-level data...
