Data Characteristics (Entity and Attribute Overview):

Data Characteristics:

Data are provided in two Excel spreadsheets, each with multiple worksheets, graphs, raw data, extractions, etc.

percent_cover.xls (originally %cover.xls)

set2.xls



There are 2 other files in an unrecognized format:

percoverr21.MPJ

set2-2.MPJ



Both spreadsheets contain what appears to be sophisticated data organization and graphics, unfortunately there is no documentation accompanying these data. Perhaps the related publication can provide enough information to allow documentation that would meet long-term archive standards.
