CPC Soil Moisture

Metadata Updated: July 4, 2016

The monthly data set consists of a file containing 1/2 degree monthly averaged soil moisture water height equivalents for the globe from 1948 onwards. Values are model-calculated and not measured directly. Soil moisture is estimated by a one-layer hydrological model (Huang et al., 1996; van den Dool et al, 2003). The model takes observed precipitation and temperature and calculates soil moisture, evaporation and runoff.
