|Model||VEMAP 2: U.S. Monthly Climate, 1895-1993, Version 2|
|Project||Vegetation-Ecosystem Modeling & Analysis|
|Time Period||1895-01-01 to 1993-12-31|
An integrated input data set for ecosystem and vegetation modeling for the conterminous United States. The data set is a ~100 year gridded monthly time series of climate that includes realistic interannual variability.

Vegetation-Ecosystem Modeling & Analysis: A multi-institutional, international effort whose goal is to evaluate the sensitivity of terrestrial ecosystem and vegetation processes to altered climate forcing and elevated atmospheric CO2. Phase 1 of the VEMAP project developed a model database of climate, soils, and vegetation compatible with the requirements of three ecosystem physiology models and three vegetation lifeform distribution models. Phase 2 developed a historical (1895-1994) gridded data set of climate (temperature, precipitation, solar radiation, humidity, and wind speed) and transient climate change scenarios based on coupled atmosphere-ocean GCM experiments, such as those with elevated greenhouse gases and sulfate aerosols.
