Project: Transect Soil Water Potential

Project ID: 210401000
Funding Source: LTER-I
Abstract:

Soil water potential for 1986 - 1988 measured with screen-cage soil psychrometers along treatment and control transects every 5 stations (30 meter intervals) at 5cm, 15cm and 30cm depths. Data include Soil temperatures and Soil Water Potential at 3 depths. Dew Point and calibration slope and intercept for each psychrometer are included in order to convert microvolt readings to -bar readings.
