Soil Moisture - Gravimetric
Soil moisture content of baseline soil samplings from the LTER Main Site and Successional and Forest sites expressed as % gravimetric moisture content, calculated on a dry weight basis. The protocol used for moisture analysis can be found in the sampling protocols.
This datatable is part of the Soil Moisture on the Main Cropping System Experiment dataset. Measurements of soil moisture began in 1989 for all treatments on the LTER main site and in 1993 on the successional and forest sites. Soil moisture is analyzed on the baseline soil samplings which are collected twice monthly or monthly during the growing season. The percent gravimetric moisture content is calculated on a dry weight basis. Other datasets from the baseline soil samplings include Inorganic nitrogen and Total N and Total C.
