WebWIMP Water Balance Calculator
Entry ID: WebWimp

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: WebWIMP is designed to evaluate a climatically-averaged, monthly water balance for virtually any terrestrial location of interest; that is, on any continent at any node of a one-half degree of latitude by one-half degree of longitude grid. Average monthly air temperature and precipitation data have been interpolated to the one-half degree by one-half degree grid and the grid-point water balance is calculated by a modified Thornthwaite procedure.
