Here, we combine a high-resolution weather product (PRISM) with fine-scale outputs of a hydrologic model (WBM) to construct functional indicators of compound hydroclimatic extremes for agriculture. Data for US counties for 1981-2015. The main variables are: degree days above 29C; degree days from 10C to 29C; seasonal mean volumetric soil moisture; seasonal mean soil moisture fraction; seasonal mean evapotranspiration; cumulative precipitation; corn irrigated area share; and metrics for the daily interaction of heat and soil moisture.
