Data Characteristics:

<pre>This data set provides annual water mass balance for 10 sub-basins inside the Ji-Parana basin (Rondonia), from September 1995 to August 1996 and modeled monthly water balance estimates.

Data description: Water mass balance for 10 sub-basins on the Ji-Parana (Rondonia) basin for September 1995 to August 1996. This data was used to check the results of a simple water balance model based on Thorthwaite-Mather water balance, spatially distributed. This data is from Table 1 in the related paper (Victoria, D., et al. 2007)
