Valdai, Russia Watershed Data in the Global Soil Moisture Data Bank
Entry ID: GLOBAL_SM_DATABANK_VALDAI

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Valdai water-balance research station in the forest zone of Russia
is operated by the State Hydrological Institute in St. Petersburg,
Russia. Data were collected from three catchments: Usadievskiy,
Tayozhniy, and Sinaya Gnilka. The data set consists of 15 files which
include monthly runoff, depth of ground water table, water equivalent
snow depth, monthly evaporation for Usadievskiy, monthly precipitation
at Valdai, and daily data for Usadievskiy including soil temperature
and runoff data.

Data are freely available from the Global Soil Moisture Data Bank at:
