EMESH Surface Station Observations


This dataset contains data collected from a dense network of Environmental Monitoring, Economical Sensor Hubs (EMESH) stations from the University of Alabama at Huntsville (UAH). These EMESH stations were deployed during the GRAINEX (Great Plains Irrigation Experiment) project to acquire meteorology, soil moisture and soil temperature observations. Specifically, this dataset contains 2m temperature, 2m pressure, 2m relative humidity, 3m wind, noncumulative rainfall, 5cm soil temperature, 30cm soil temperature, 5cm soil moisture, and 30cm soil moisture.
