Soilmoisture - daily values taken with a TDR array at midnight local time at Cabauw

Volumetric soil moisture contents have been measured daily between 6 november 2003 and 19 August 2010 with a TDR set-up developed by Heimovaara and Bouten consisting of six arrays of six sensors between 5 and 73 cm below the soil surface. The six arrays were positioned on the perimeter of a circle with a diameter of 9 m with equal distances. The TDR was calibrated by taking 6 undisturbed soil samples (diameter: 20 cm; height: 20 cm) into the lab and comparing independently measured volumetric soil moisture contents to the TDR measurements. Measurements were performed at midnight local time, without taking daylight savings time into account.
