The Maize Ecosystem Dataset including Surface Energy and Water Budget in North China Plain was developed based on the meteorological data from 10 stations in Miyun, Baodi, Huanghua, Tangshan, Weifang, Xinxiang, Zhengzhou, Shangqiu, Zhumadian and Nanyang stations in the North China Plain. The data covers the time period from 1980 to 2009. The calibrated SiBcrop model was used to estimate the responses of surface energy and water budgets under different scenarios. The dataset includes: (1) geo-location of the stations; (2) daily maize growth dynamic (including leaf area index, growing degree day, leaf biomass, sowing date, the emergence date), surface energy balance (including sensible heat flux, latent heat flux, the four components of shortwave radiation, downward long-wave radiation and net radiation), canopy temperature and soil moisture under three scenarios from 1980 to 2009. The dataset is archived in .shp and .xlsx data formats, and consists of 26 data files, including 10 tables consisted of 25 columns in 32850 records in each table, the data size is 64.6 MB (compressed to one single file with 62.1 MB).
