Data from a global distributed basin morphometric dataset
This collection is shared privately
Basin characteristics are compressed into a single file for each continent. An example file name is “AF.zip” with AF standing for Africa. The rest continents are AS for Asia, EU for Europe, AU for Australia, CA for Central America, NA for North America and SA for South America. One will find the file, “AF_BL.tif”, among other characteristics by decompressing the “AF.zip” file. Other variable abbreviations include BR, Lg, Nu, Lu, Lv, MFL, P and SO, standing for basin relief, length of overland flow, stream number, stream length, down valley length, main (maximal) flow length, perimeter and stream order, respectively. The unit of length and elevation quantities is meter.
