Summary
Abstract: The Africa Soil Information Service (AfSIS): Topographic Wetness Index (TWI) is a 90m raster dataset showing zones of increased soil moisture where the landscape area contributing runoff is large and slopes are low. The topographic wetness index, originally developed by Beven and Kirkby in 1979, provides a measure of wetness conditions at the catchment scale. This dataset combines local upslope ...
