Aggregated gridded bedrock depth dataset for Mackenzie and Nelson-Churchill River Basin based on bedrock data by Shangguan et al. (2017)

Description: The bedrock dataset created by Shangguan et al. (2017) is aggregated to a lower resolution (larger pixels) of 0.125 degree for Mackenzie and Nelson-Churchill River Basins for its applicability with Hydrology and Land Surface Models. This dataset is in particular generated for using with MESH (Modélisation Environnementale communautaire - Surface Hydrology), a distributed coupled hydrology-land surface model developed by Environment and Climate Change Canada, as applied to Mackenzie and Nelson-Churchill River Basins. The statistics calculated for each final larger pixel (0.125 degrees) include mean, median, maximum, minimum, and standard deviation of the original higher resolution pixels within it. Also, in order to provide an idea of the reliability of this transformation, a corresponding 0.125 degrees raster dataset is created containing the number of missing values (NA) from the Shangguan et al. (2017) dataset within each larger 0.125 degree pixels.
