Observation dataset of soil temperature and moisture in Xiaoluan Watershed (2018-2019)

Observation dataset of soil temperature and moisture in Xiaoluan Watershed (2018-2019)

The dataset includes 29 soil temperature and moisture observation sites in Xiaoluan Watershed. The observation time is from August 28, 2018 to February 28, 2019, with an interval of 30 min. The depth of observation is 5 cm and 10 cm, totally 2 layers. The automatic observation network measures data both at the passive microwave pixel scale (e.g., SMAP, SMOS, AMSR2, and FY-3) and active microwave satellite pixel scale (e.g., Sentinel-1). The observation area of the active and passive microwave pixels is 0.1°×0.1° and 0.25°×0.25°, respectively. There are 12 sites (named A (Active)) in active microwave pixels and 17 sites (named P (Passive)) in passive microwave pixels.

File naming and required software

File name: the name of the soil temperature and moisture data file is "site_ Level. xlsx ", where site represents the site name and level represents the data level, such as A1_ L1. xlsx represents the L1 soil temperature and moisture data of A1 station.
Data reading mode: the data can be directly opened in Excel.
