ARM Soil Water Retention Data Set
The Department of Energy (DOE) Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Southern Great Plains (SGP) Soil Water Retention Data Set is one of the various sub-surface data sets developed for the ARM/GCIP (Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment ?GEWEX? Continental-scale International Project) 1996 Near-Surface Observation (NESOB-96) Data Set. This data set contains a table for each of the ARM SWATS (Soil Water and Temperature System) sites at the SGP site containing the observed soil water retention data as obtained from laboratory tests using pressure plates and hanging columns. The soil characterizations were perfomed by Oklahoma State University. No additional quality control was performed by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research/Joint Office for Science Support (UCAR/JOSS).
