Global top soil texture data compatible with the WRF model based on the Harmonized World Soil Database (HWSD) at 30 arc-second hor. resolution Version 1.21

Abstract:
Data contain dominating soil type in a grid cell for the whole world at 30 arc-second (~1km) horizontal resolution. The data are based on Harmonized World Soil Database (HWSD), but reclassified according to the State Soil Geographic (STATSGO) classification table of the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model for NOAH and NOAH-MP Land Surface Models (LSMs). The source of the data is HWSD version 1.21, provided by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), International Soil Reference and Information Centre (ISRIC), Institute of Soil Science - Chinese Academy of Sciences (ISSCAS) and Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (JRC) in 2012 (FAO/IIASA/ISRIC/ISSCAS/JRC, 2012. Harmonized World Soil Database (version 1.21). FAO, Rome, Italy and IIASA, Laxenburg, Austria). Horizontal resolution: 0.0083333333333333° Type/units: categorical/1-16 categories Missing_value: -9999(ascii file), 241.0 (WRF-bin) Projection: regular latitude longitude
