Description:
Abstract:
This data set consists of soil moisture measurements from agricultural fields in the former Soviet Union. Measurements of gravimetric soil moisture are from about 600 agrimeteorological stations from 102 administrative districts throughout the grain belt of the former Soviet Union (Russia, Ukraine, Byelorussia, Moldova, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Kazakhstan). Data are freely available from the Global Soil Moisture Data Bank at in ASCII and GrADS format: "ftp://climate.envsci.rutgers.edu/pub/soil_moisture/RUSWET-AGRO" or ftp climate.envsci.rutgers.edu login as: anonymous Password: your email address cd pub/soil_moisture/RUSWET-AGRO/
