The goal of this collaborative project is to continue the development of national-scale in situ soil moisture products for multiple, diverse applications across the contiguous U.S. This project builds on the success of NationalSoilMoisture.com, a NIDIS-funded first-generational, near-real time, gridded soil moisture product blending in situ, remote-sensing, and modeled data.
This second phase of the research effort is focused on four tasks:
- Sustain and enhance NationalSoilMoisture.com
- Validate and improve the accuracy of soil moisture products in forests and rangelands
- Develop improved products for uncertainty propagation
- Develop a soil moisture-based flash drought early warning product.
