Title Amazon area-floodplain plus open water
Downloaded 10 times
Description SMMR (Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer) and river stage data were used to estimate the area flooded along the Amazon River and its tributaries at monthly intervals. This file gives the monthly estimated floodplain area in square kilometers. The open water area is given separately in another attached file. See Figure 1 to define the river “reaches” (1-12) used to separate the data.

Title Amazon area-open water
Downloaded 6 times
Description SMMR (Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer) and river stage data were used to estimate the area flooded along the Amazon River and its tributaries at monthly intervals. This file gives the monthly estimated open water area in square kilometers; this open water area is included in Amazon area-floodplain plus open water.csv. See Figure 1 to define the river “reaches” (1-12) used to separate the data.

Title Amazon tributary area- floodplain plus open water
Downloaded 6 times
Description SMMR (Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer) and river stage data were used to estimate the area flooded along 3 major Amazon River tributaries (Jurua, Purus and Madeiras) at monthly intervals. This file gives the monthly estimated floodplain and open water area in square kilometers. See Figure 1 to define the river “reaches” (1-12) used to separate the data.
