Inundation observations, climate data, and landscape attributes for vernal pools of the northeastern United States

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

This data release includes a data-processing script, data products, and associated metadata for a study to model the hydrology of several hundred vernal pools (seasonal pools or ephemeral wetlands) across the northeastern United States. The dataset described in this metadata document consists of several components: (1) pool-specific attributes including name and geographic location, (2) time-varying inundation observations collected between May 2004 and July 2016; (3) landscape attributes associated with pool locations including geologic, soil, and landcover characteristics; (4) short- and medium-term weather and climate variables for time periods (for example, 5-days and 6-months) immediately preceding the dates of inundation observations; and (5) long-term (30-year average) climate variables associated with pool locations.
