Nebraska Soil Moisture

Soil moisture plays a critical role in agricultural activities and land atmosphere interaction. In 1998 the High Plains Regional Climate Center upgraded stations in the Automated Weather Data Network (AWDN) to monitor soil water at 14 sites in Nebraska. The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has provided soil moisture sensors for some of the sites. Currently, sensors are placed at 10, 25, 50, and 100 cm below the surface at 51 AWDN sites.
