Summary
Abstract: The China Soil Moisture Data consists of 43 stations in China, for the
period 1981-1991 (Entin, et al. 1999). Soil moisture observations were
taken using a gravimetric technique for each 10 cm layer of soil down
to a depth of 1 m, with the first layer divided into two 5-cm
layers. Vegetation in this network was mostly agriculture or
grassland.
