Description

The University of New Hampshire (UNH)/Global Runoff Data Centre (GRDC) composite runoff data combines simulated water balance model runoff estimates derived from climate forcing with monitored river discharge. It can be viewed as a data assimilation applied in a water balance model context (conceptually similar to the commonly used 4DDA techniques used in meteorological modeling). Such a data assimilation scheme preserves the spatial specificity of the water balance calculations while constrained by the more accurate discharge measurement. There are 11 data files in this data set and 1 changemap file which shows the differences between the ISLSCP II land/water mask and the original data set.
