This dataset shows innundation from the terrestrial ecosystems (reference classification) of South America, Central America, and Mexico. South America: This dataset represents Ecological System patches using various reference datasets. Original data generarated from 2000 era data, modeled in 2005 and updated in 2008 and 2010.Originally, this project developed a GIS modeling approach, using a variety of abiotic and biotic data sets, to produce a map of the distribution of Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) ecological systems throughout South America for use in ecoregional assessments. Ecological systems, defined as spatially co-occuring assemblages of vegetation types sharing a common underlying substrate, ecological...

Mean annual cycles of runoff, evapotranspiration, leaf area index (LAI) and potential vegetation were modeled for Mesoamerica, using the soil-vegetation-atmosphere-transfer (SVAT) model MAPSS with different climatology datasets. The model was calibrated and validated after building a comprehensive database of regional runoff, climate, soils and LAI. The product is the first high resolution (1 km) maps combinging average long-term runoff, evapotranspiration, LAI and potential vegetation types for Mesoamerica.
