IHOP_2002: Oklahoma Mesonet Soil Moisture Data


This dataset contains the IHOP Oklahoma Mesonet 30-Minute Soil Moisture Data for the IHOP time of interest. The Oklahoma Climatological Survey (OCS) supplied the raw data, which contained calibrated and quality-assured values of DeltaT reference. Alan Robock and Lifeng Luo of Rutgers University computed the volumetric water content. The empirical relationship used to estimate volumetric water content and the latest coefficients (version 8) are provided in the README file. The original README file for the raw data will be delivered along with the reformatted data, as will a detailed station list.

This dataset is provided "as is" and was not quality controlled by NCAR/EOL. This dataset is password protected. For password information, please see the contact for this dataset.
