The soil temperature and moisture dataset of the Muztagh Ata station (2013-2016)

This data set contains the daily values of soil temperature and moisture at different depths observed from the Integrated Observation and Research Station of the Westerly Environment in Muztagh Ata from January 1, 2013, to December 31, 2015. The data were collected digitally and automatically by observation instruments. The data set was processed by forming a continuous time sequence after the raw data were quality controlled. Observation and collection of the data were performed in strict accordance with the instrument operating specifications, and the systematic error caused by the missing point data and the sensor failure were eliminated.

This table contains 12 fields.
