Monthly Soil Moisture Climatology

Soil Moisture Animated Loop

Notes:
Full Field: unit is mm and the maximum is set to be 760 mm in the model. With a porosity of 0.47 this corresponds to a model depth of about to 1.6 meters
Wetness: ratio of calculated soil moisture (mm) to the maximum (760 mm)
Anomaly: departure from 1971-2000 Climatology (unit: mm)
Ranking Percentile: from 1932-2000 period
