Observation-based MAP OF MEAN RUNOFF
A global map of mean annual runoff (0.04° resolution) based on streamflow observations from 1651 large catchments (>10,000 km²). The map can be considered an update of the 0.5° UNH/GRDC Composite Runoff Fields dataset, which was based on observations from only 663 catchments. The map including documentation is available here. Please cite DOI 10.5281/zenodo.44782 when using the map in any publication.
New Köppen-Geiger climate classification
New world map of the Köppen-Geiger climate classification (0.04° resolution) based on the most accurate gauge-based climate data currently available (i.e. WorldClim and PRISM). Available here.
