ISLSCP II Global River Fluxes of Carbon and Sediments to the Oceans

Data Set Overview

Data setISLSCP II Global River Fluxes of Carbon and Sediments to the Oceans
Release date2011-09-21
ProjectISLSCP Initiative II (ISLSCP II)
Time Period1947-01-01 to 1998-12-31


The River Carbon Flux data set represents estimates for the riverine export of carbon and of sediments. This data set includes the amounts of carbon and of sediments that are discharged to the oceans by rivers for each coastal grid point which receives river inputs. This data set contains three compressed (*.zip) files: the original data at 2.5 x 2.0 degrees, and global maps at spatial resolutions of 0.5 and 1.0 degree which the ISLSCP II staff has created from the original data.
