Modeling ecohydrological processes and spatial patterns in the upstream of the Heihe River Basin V1.0 (2001-2012)

The output data of the distributed eco hydrological model in the upper reaches of Heihe River includes the spatial distribution data of 1-km grid and the discharge time series data of the outlet of the basin. (1) Spatial distribution data of 1-km grid, monthly average soil moisture, actual evapotranspiration, runoff depth and other spatial distribution data of 1-km resolution. (2) Runoff time series daily flow data of river basin outlet.

Data file naming and use method

File name: the data is stored in Ascii format as a text file, and the file USES the simulation results as a folder to store 0~100cm soil moisture wsoil, runoff depth runoff, data space range, daily flow process, and evapotranspiration evap.
Data reading: you can use a text program (such as notepad) to open, if you want to use the diagram to display, you can use Arcgis to open, in the process of reading will generate grid format file, the grid file displayed is the graphic expression of the ASCII code file.
