Summary

This dataset consists of historical estimates and future projections of land use and climate data summarized within the 1:100,000 National Hydrography Dataset Version 2 (NHDPlusV2) framework for catchments and upstream accumulated watersheds. Historical land use data are for the year 2005 and future land use projections are for the years 2030, 2060, and 2090. The projections offer a unique combination of thematic detail (17 land-use and land-cover classes). Historical climate estimates are averaged over the time period 1980-1999 and future climate projections are averaged over 20-year periods centered around the years 2030, 2060, and 2090. Climate data include seasonal measures of average air temperature (℃) and total precipitation [...]
