SMEX03 Little River Micronet Soil Moisture Data: Georgia
Entry ID: NSIDC-0329

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Parameters for this data set include precipitation, soil temperature, volumetric soil moisture, soil conductivity, and soil salinity measured in the Little River Watershed (LRW) Micronet regional study areas of southeastern Georgia, USA. Data for this study were collected from 01 May 2003 through 31 August 2003 using in situ soil moisture sensors at depths of 2, 8, and 12 inches in addition to ... View entire text

Quality These data have been quality controlled and suspect or missing data have been removed. Consequently, the data are not continuous. Quality control and quality assurance have been limited, but investigations have led to some improvements. Several sensors have been eliminated from this averaging due to poor or suspicious performance. Arithmetic averages and averages based on nearest neighbor weighting are based on the same set of sensors. Standard deviations are also calculated for reference. Table 5 in the guide document for this data set lists regions where measurements are either poor or outside the LRW Micronet.
