Agrineer - Campaign for additional SME soil models
This is a (future) campaign to add more soil model options
to the Soil Moisture Estimator (
The SME platform provides daily, hourly-based, atmospheric-surface
interface load values that can be applied to different soil moisture
These values are derived from model data and/or local input data:
- crop-indexed evapotranspiration ETc (from modeled ETo)
(from modeled or local input rain, and local input irrigation)
The Sacramento Soil Moisture Accounting model
initiates the first implementation of available soil models.
This campaign seeks to implement other models. Under current
consideration are bucket and finite-element methods.
Having different soil moisture models allows for research
comparisons to each other.
