Abstract: This data set contains soil temperature and soil moisture data from nine sites in China. Temporal coverage varies by station; the earliest record is from June 1998, and the latest is from May 2002. Data from individual stations are available in tab-delimited ASCII text files. An Excel spreadsheet contains the same data compiled together in a single file. NSIDC currently provides these summary data via ftp; the full soil temperature and moisture data set is available from Ron Paetzold, USDA.
