Investigation:

CD-06 (Richey / Victoria)

LBA Dataset ID:

CD06_PHYSICAL_TEMPLATE

Originator(s):

BALLESTER, M.V.R.

Point(s) of Contact:

ORNL DAAC User Services Office Oak Ridge National Laboratory Oak Ridge, Tennessee 37 (ornldaac@ornl.gov)

Dataset Abstract:

This dataset contains physical, demographic, political and social data used as base information in subsequent investigations of Ji-Parana Basin land use/land cover, biogeochemistry, soils, and water balance. Included are a DEM, river networks and morphometric characteristics of the region (derived from the DEM), and a number of social and demographic vector sets (roads as of 2001, county borders, population change from 1970-2000, and settlement projects).
