New Network: "RISMA"
The first Canadian network "RISMA" (Real-time In-situ Soil Monitoring for Agriculture) has been added to the ISMN. "RISMA" is operated by the "Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada" and contains of three subnetworks which are located in three different provinces in Canada: Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. The subnetwork "Saskatchewan" is located close to Strongfield and consists of four stations with soil moisture measurements in six different depths. The subnetwork "Manitoba" is situated near to Winnipeg and consists of 12 stations with soil moisture measurements in five different depths. And the subnetwork "Ontario" is located close to Ottawa and consists of seven stations with soil moisture measurements in four different depths.
Next to soil moisture also soil temperature, air temperature and precipitation is measured at all stations. Depending on the stations soil moisture measurements are available since April 2014.
We would like to thank Anna Pacheco for providing the datasets and for her support during the implementation process.
