Cartwright, J., Morelli, T., and Grant, E., 2020, Inundation observations and inundation model predictions for vernal pools of the northeastern United States: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


The dataset provided here and described in this metadata document contains predicted wetness probability (PWP) values for vernal pools under a variety of weather and climate conditions at several seasonal time points, generated using inundation models as described in the processing steps section of this metadata document and in the annotated R script included in this data release ("annotated_R_script_for_pool_inundation_modeling.R"). PWP values represent the predicted likelihood of a pool holding water according to a specified inundation threshold, as defined in this metadata document. PWP values can theoretically range from 0 (pool is predicted to have no chance of inundation) to 1 (pool is predicted to have 100 percent likelihood [...]

This dataset represents the results of the prediction phase of inundation modeling for vernal pools in this data release. The purpose of this dataset is to present model predictions of wetness probability (i.e., inundation likelihood) at several seasonal time points under a variety of weather and climate scenarios.
