Soil profile moisture

Data in the KBS LTER core database may not be published without written permission of the lead investigator or project director Full terms of use

Soil moistures are measured hourly with a Campbell TDR100 system. The hourly data is passed through a 13 point median filter, then the daily median is retrieved and the result is passed through a 3 point filter that passes the middle point if the vwc is within 0.03 % of the mean of the surrounding points if it did not rain in the last 2 days. If it did rain it middle point is accepted if it is higher than the mean of the outside points.

This datatable is part of the Profile Soil Moistures dataset. ’’
