Description

Datasets containing information on climate, hydrology, atmospheric deposition, and surficial geology characteristics calculated at hu12, hu8, hu4, edu, county and state spatial classifications (see ?scales).

Format

Data frames with all or a subset of the following variables. Number of observations is equal to the number of zones in each spatial scale (see Details below). Wildcard options include a subset of the LAGOSNE spatial scales (* = hu12, hu8, hu4, edu, county, state), years of measurement (** = 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010), and summary statistic or units (*** = min, max, mean, std for atmospheric deposition and hydrology; *** = ha, pct for surficial geology)

Details

Original data sources and layers from which each metric was derived can be found in additional file 5 of Soranno et al. (2015). Briefly, climate data came from the PRISM climate group, hydrology metrics were derived from United States Geologic Survey (USGS) data, atmospheric deposition was from the National Atmospheric Deposition program, and surficial geology were derived from layers USGS data.
