Soil water content (saturation)
Feb. 15, 2015
March 16, 2017
This data package contains raw soil water content data from the NGEE Tropics K34 tower site on a plateau near Manaus, Brazil (BR-Ma2). Data was collected over the time period of 2015-02-15
to 2017-03-16. The attached zip file contains data, related metadata excel files, and sensor manuals as PDF files. All sensors on a single Campbell CR3000 data logger were installed near ground on the K34 tower. Additional file level metadata is contained in the referenced dataset. This dataset replaces the soil water content data of two retired packages, http://dx.doi.org/10.15486/ngt/1507764 and http://dx.doi.org/10.15486/ngt/1507767
The soil water content data was collected using time domain reflectometry (TDR) sensors installed in two pits (1m depth each) located in a plateau area near the K-34 tower (ZF-2 / Manaus). The pit 1 is 12 meters far from K34 tower (-02º36'32.46120''S; -60º12'33.18840''W) and the pit 2 is 30.5 meters far from K34 tower (-02º36'32.96160''S;-60º12'32.70600''W).
