Jornada Basin LTER: Wireless meteorological station at NPP C-SAND site: 30-minute soil volumetric water content data: 2013 - ongoing

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

30-minute Soil Moisture data at NPP C-SAND met station. Collection of soil volumetric water content data at Jornada LTER NPP sites, New Mexico, supports the environmental monitoring objectives of the Jornada LTER monitoring program that look at plant-soil water dynamics. Volumetric water content, bulk electrical conductivity, soil temperature, and bulk dielectric permittivity are measured every 30 minutes at an automated meteorological station installed at Jornada LTER NPP C-SAND site. Measurements are made every 30 minutes at 10 cm, 20 cm, and 30 cm soil depths. This is an ONGOING dataset.
