Climate model land surface datasets

We have recently developed new global land surface parameters for the Community Land Model (CLM 3.0) for use in climate modeling experiments. The new parameters represent the Current Day from MODIS land surface products and Potential Vegetation from Ramankutty and Foley, (1999). The new parameters have been produced at 0.05 degrees so can be aggregated to a range of climate model resolutions.
