Abstract:
The near surface humidity in a megadiverse mountain ecosystem in southern Ecuador is examined on the basis of Relative Humidity (RH) measurements inside the natural mountain forest and at open sites alon an altitudinal gradient from 1700 to 3200 m. The maps in the dataset are the product of a study with the main metodologocal aim to generate a humidity regionalization tool to provide spatial datasets on average monthly mean, minimum and maximum RH, Specific Humidity (q) and Specific Satuartion Deficit (Ds) by using observation data of RH. <br/> The maps based on data of the period 1999-2009 can be used by ecologocal projects working on various plots where no climate station data are available.
