CliC (MAGS): BERMS Soil Temperature and Soil Moisture Data Set


This data set contains the Coordinated Energy and Water Cycle Observation Project (CEOP) Climate and Cryosphere (CliC; formerly Mackenzie GEWEX [Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment] Study [MAGS]) Boreal Ecosystem Research and Monitoring Sites (BERMS) Soil Temperature and Soil Moisture Data Set. This data set contains 30 minute soil temperatures, and moistures from varying heights) from six stations, Old Aspen (2), Old Black Spruce (2) and Old Jack Pine (2), in BERMS for the period 01 October 2002 to 31 December 2009.

This data set contains both ASCII data and netCDF data. The ASCII data file covers the entire time period for all stations. The netCDF data file covers the entire time period with one netCDF file for each station.
