[…] of statistics based on the distribution of irrigation-relevant geographical features and artificial facilities. however, its accuracy varies geographically because of differences in data quality. mirca [] is another map that avoids this problem through the use of uniform irrigation data. however, the method used in both gmia and mirca—fusion of non-remote-sensing data—results in coarse […]

[…] rates of manure and mineral fertilization was retrieved from the capri model () for the year 2000 and kept constant through the simulation., irrigated cropland areas were identified using the mirca database (). about 9200 km2 of the basin are irrigated (1% of entire danube basin), corresponding to a total of 290 hrus. the swat auto-irrigation option, whereby irrigation is applied […]

[…] is provided in table . in summary, we downloaded a total of 954 downscaled climate maps of t max and t min. temperature maps were overlaid with maps of rice cultivated areas as identified by the mirca dataset (portmann, siebert, & doll, ). we then calculated seasonal average t max and average t min over the months included in the growing seasons and over the gcm's available.

[…] mean co2 concentration; the rcp global annual mean co2 concentration; and the plant-extractable water capacities of soil. from the model, the sowing date for 2000 was found to be similar to that of mirca2000 (ref. ), but changed dynamically based on the simulated temperature and moisture regimens (see sowing date in supplementary note)., three types of simulation, i.e., the historical, future […]

[…] plant types at 0.5° resolution. crop production is represented by 12 specified crop functional types, irrigated or rainfed. spatially explicit data on cropland extent is obtained from the mirca2000 land use data set and the extent of areas equipped for irrigation from siebert et al.. a recently implemented mechanistic irrigation module provides the framework for irrigation transitions […]
