    This data collection is composed of land use data sets, generated by combining national, state, and county level census statistics along with a global data set of croplands from countries around the world for the year 2000. The resulting land use data sets depict circa the year 2000 the...

  14. Metadata for Indiana Stream Flow Data

    15 May 2012 | Downloads | Contributor(s): Jake R Carlson

    The United States Geological Survey (USGS) daily streamflow dataset is the source of this dataset. Streamflow data are subjected to human interference, and therefore data contain both natural and regulated flows. This practice does not cause serious problems in flood frequency analysis (flows are...

  20. A copula-based joint deficit index for droughts

    31 Mar 2010 | Publications | Contributor(s): Rao S Govindaraju
