Description

This dataset includes all variables used to assess differences in freeze/thaw products across global climate, land cover, and elevation. This includes modified versions of Koppen-Geiger climate and MODIS IGBP land cover classifications used in this study. Files containing the cropped Global Multi-resolution Terrain Elevation Data 2010 elevation data and "freezing days" derived using the Global Land Data Assimilation Data are also included. Files containing/defining the overlapping classification regions for the Soil Moisture Active Passive freeze/thaw and the Freeze/Thaw Earth System Data Record domains. Additionally, the spatial map of agreement for the entire study period (April 1, 2015 - December 31, 2017) is included. All files have an accompanied text file which include necessary data descriptions. SMAP and FT-ESDR data are hosted on the NSIDC website and can be accessed there. Necessary data citations are provided in the manuscript.
