Global effective plant rooting depth

The global effective plant rooting depth (unit: meter) datasets contains a climatological map of mean effective plant rooting depth over 1982-2010 at 0.5 degree spatial resolution based on Guswa's Carbon Cost-Benefit model. A detailed description of the method, input data and hydrological validation of the effectiveness of the estimated rooting dep... more
