This dataset consists of microclimatic temperature and vegetation structure maps at a 3-meter spatial resolution across the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Included are raster models for sub-canopy, near-surface, minimum and maximum temperature averaged across the study period, season, and month during the growing season months of March through November from 2006-2010. Also available are the topographic and vegetation inputs developed for the microclimate models, including LiDAR-derived vegetation height, LiDAR-derived vegetation structure within four height strata, solar insolation, distance-to-stream, and topographic convergence index (TCI).
