Jornada Basin LTER Cross-scale Interactions Study (CSIS) Block 6 meteorological station: Daily average soil volumetric water content data: 2013 - ongoing

posted on 2023-11-30, 10:13 authored by Michael Duniway

Daily Average of 30-minute Soil Volumetric Water Content data at 10 cm at CSIS Block-6. Collection of soil water content data at Jornada LTER Cross-scale Interactions Study (CSIS) blocks, New Mexico, supports the environmental monitoring objectives of the Jornada LTER monitoring program that look at plant-soil water dynamics. Soil volumetric water content is measured every 30 minutes at 10 cm depth at 3 locations at each of the 4 plots per block and averaged for the daily value. The locations in each plot are under bare soil, under perennial grass, and under shrub. Volumetric water content, bulk electrical conductivity, soil temperature, and bulk dielectric permittivity are recorded at an automated meteorological station installed at Jornada LTER CSIS Block-6 site. This is an ONGOING dataset.
