Title: Gridded Precipitation and Drainage Data from the Institute of Hydrology, United Kingdom
Description:
Abstract:
The Institute of Hydrology (IH) investigates the effects of land-use, climate, topography and geology on the volume and character of surface water resources. IH is one of the four Institutes that form the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH) which is itself a component of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). Research extends from water and energy fluxes to processes such as evaporation, interception and infiltration and to mathematical modelling of the hydrological cycle and chemical processes above and below ground. Below is a selection of spatial gridded datasets available from IH. For information on these and other available datasets, see the IH website. Precipitation and Climatic Data Rainfall for individual months (Jan 1961 - Dec 1996)(1km grid) 1941-70 annual average rainfall (1km grid) 5 year return period 2 day rainfall (1km grid) 5 year return period 1 hour rainfall as a % of M52D (1km grid) 5 year return period 25 day rainfall as % of SAAR (1km grid) Estimated maximum 2 hour rainfall (1km grid and vector) Estimated maximum 24 hour rainfall (1km grid and vector) Drainage Data 1:50,000 rivers (Vector) Catchment boundaries (Vector) Hydrometric area boundaries (Vector) Catchment boundaries (IHDTM-derived for user specified point) (Vector) Northern Ireland primary and secondary drainage basins (Vector) Runoff (1km grid) Digital Terrain Model (50m grid) Elevation Surface type Drainage direction Inflow direction Catchment area Landcover data Built-up areas (50m grid) Soils Data Winter rainfall acceptance potential (WRAP) 100m grid Hydrology Of Soil Types (HOST) 1km grid Floods Data Estimated 100-year flood risk (3 depth bands) for Scotland only 50m grid To order data or to obtain more information on the dataset that interests you, please email spatialdata@wpo.nerc.ac.uk.
