Cosmic-ray soil moisture monitoring network

A sneak peak at our new Cosmic-ray soil moisture monitoring network, Installed by COSMOS-UK. The network provides near-real time soil moisture data for use in a variety of applications including farming, water resources, flood forecasting and land-surface modelling. Each station is equipped with an instrument that uses cosmic-rays to sense soil moisture over an area of about 20 hectares (about 50 acres). Data from the network have the potential to transform the way that we understand and model the natural environment.
