Data setCMS: Evapotranspiration and Meteorology, Water-Limited Shrublands, Mexico, 2008-2010
Release date2016-03-21
ProjectCarbon Monitoring System (CMS)
Time Period2008-01-01 to 2010-12-31


This data set provides daily average observations for evapotranspiration (measured and gap-filled), precipitation, net radiation, soil water content, air temperature, vapor pressure deficit, and normalized vegetation index (NDVI) from two water-limited shrubland sites for years 2008-2010. Both sites are located in the northwest part of Mexico and are part of the MexFlux network.

Carbon Monitoring System (CMS): The NASA Carbon Monitoring System (CMS) is designed to make significant contributions in characterizing, quantifying, understanding, and predicting the evolution of global carbon sources and sinks through improved monitoring of carbon stocks and fluxes. The System will use the full range of NASA satellite observations and modeling/analysis capabilities to establish the accuracy, quantitative uncertainties, and utility of products for supporting national and international policy, regulatory, and management activities. CMS will maintain a global emphasis while providing finer scale regional information, utilizing space-based and surface-based data and will rapidly initiate generation and distribution of products both for user evaluation and to inform near-term policy development and planning.
