Summary
Abstract: The VEMAP Reference Data collection contains the following datasets:

Geography - elevation, area, and percent land area for each VEMAP grid-cell. Landcover - potential natural vegetation under current conditions. Soil modes - the number of dominant (modal) soils in each VEMAP grid-cell for which soils data are available.

Note that the VEMAP1 published simulations were based on the mineral soil ... View entire text
