Abstract:
The VEMAP Reference Data collection contains the following dataset: Landcover - potential natural vegetation under current conditions. Data provided by the Vegetation/Ecosystem Modeling and Analysis Project (VEMAP) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) are gridded monthly time series climate data for the Conterminous United States at 0.5 x 0.5 degree spatial resolution.

Use_Constraints:
Use of the VEMAP dataset is subject to the following guidelines and restrictions: (1) Users may confer with the NCAR VEMAP Data Group to ensure that the intended application of the dataset is consistent with the generation and limitations of the data. (2) To help us identify dataset errors or inconsistencies, we request that users contact the NCAR VEMAP Data Group regarding problems with data files, data access, or the dataset's representation of climate. For problems with data access or file format, please refer to &http://www.cgd.ucar.edu/vemap/contacts.html& (3) Credit in publications resulting from the use of the VEMAP2 data will be given (a) by citation of VEMAP data set (http://eos-earthdata.sr.unh.edu/) and appropriate VEMAP data papers and (b) by acknowledgement of VEMAP sponsors (NASA Earth Science Enterprise, EPRI, and the USDA Forest Service Global Change Program) and the VEMAP Data Group (T. Kittel, D. Schimel, A. Royle, N. Rosenbloom, H. Fisher, S. Aulenbach, and C. Kaufman, NCAR, and C. Daly, Oregon State University) for access to the data.
