Liu, J., and Sleeter, B.M., 2018, Simulated 1km resolution 1971-2015 ecosystem carbon variables from the IBIS model (2017/09/12): U.S. Geological Survey data release,


This simulated ecosystem carbon dataset is derived from simulations of the parallel Integrated Biosphere simulator (pIBIS). Annual carbon variables cover 1971-2015 at 1-km (960m) spatial resolution with 3052 rows and 4823 columns. Carbon stock and flux units are in kgC/m2 and kgC/m2/yr, respectively. Data are in NetCDF format and Albers equal area projection. Overall data creation steps: 1. The pIBIS model was used to run simulations using climate, vegetation, soil and disturbance input data; 2. Model outputs were converted to NetCDF format; 3. 1971-2015 subsets were clipped from original 1901-2015 simulation outputs. Variable List: aynbp – annual net biome productivity ayneetot – net ecosystem productivity aynpptot – net primary productivity [...]
