A multi-scale soil moisture and temperature monitoring network was established on the central Tibetan Plateau to support remote sensing, land hydrological modeling, and surface process studies. The network measures two state variables (soil moisture and temperature) at three spatial scales (1.0, 0.3, 0.1 degree) and four soil depths (0~5, 10, 20, and 40 cm). The data is accessible upon request.
