Progress on Development of a Global In-Situ Soil Moisture Network I
  • Portuguese Meteorological Institute leads Soil Moisture Network Data hosting contract funded through ESA within the framework of SMOS Calibration-Validation activities
    • Incubator for global network hosting
    • Following and setting international standards (ISO, as well as based upon CEOP activities)
    • Cooperation with CEOP (Coordinated Energy and Water Cycle Observations Project of GEWEX)
    • Kick-Off within next 2 months, SMOS Launch 2nd half 2008
    • Aim for two type of products a quick release product as pre-cursor for NRT observations and a consolidated quality checked product
    • Open access
  • 14, 15 November 2007, 2nd Int. Soil Moisture Working Group meeting to be held in Beijing.
    • Establish Protocols for Soil Moisture Measurements (sensors, networks)
    • Establish quality assurance
    • Strengthen coordination between contributors
    • Good participation expected in particular from Asian counterparts
  • Network will eventually be distributed in nature with more than one centre collecting and hosting the data
    • Stimulate cooperation within different global regions

Progress on Development of a Global In-Situ Soil Moisture Network II

Long term plans:

  • Stimulate Synoptic Networks to include other measurements such as soil moisture
  • Strengthen Soil Moisture acceptance within GCOS as ‘essential’ climate variable
  • Make soil moisture network part of World Weather Watch
