Summary
Abstract: These datasets consist of soil moisture readings measured at six sites
in Brazil. Readings were taken close to each automatic weather station
(AWS) except at Mabaus Forest where data was recorded in primary
forest close to the pasture site. All datasets are compressed into a
single file AB_SOIL.EXE.

Additional information about the ABRACOS soil moisture data including
