Tropical and Subtropical Wetland Distribution

Description : This dataset shows a distribution of wetland that covers the tropics and sub tropics (38° N to 56° S; 161° E to 117° W), excluding small islands. It was mapped in 236 meters spatial resolution by combining a hydrological model and annual time series of satellite-derived estimates of soil moisture to represent water flow and surface wetness that are then combined with geomorphological data.
