SPM30 | Introduction to the International Soil Moisture Network - a global reference data center for in-situ soil moisture observations


For over a decade, the International Soil Moisture Network (ISMN) has been providing free in-situ soil moisture data. The ISMN consists of over 72 networks and 2800 stations spread across the globe. The services provided by ISMN has greatly contributed to validating and improving global satellite soil moisture products, earth-surface as well as hydrological models. For continuing improvement of the ISMN, it is essential that users and data providers of soil moisture observation engage in participatory discussion to identify the success, challenges and provide recommendations that would benefit the wider community. This meeting therefore aims at engaging the soil moisture scientific community (data users and providers) on improving exchange of soil moisture data; sharing information about operationalization of research databases; and to demonstrate connections to other world water data centres federated within the Global Terrestrial Network - Hydrology (GTN-H).
