The COsmic-ray Soil Moisture Observing System (COSMOS) is coming to the catchment

A non-invasive, intermediate scale soil moisture measurement network consisting initially of 50 probes is upscaling to 500 probes distributed across the contiguous USA. Recent research progress has determined soil moisture can be inferred from measurements of cosmic-ray neutrons that are generated within soil and emitted back to the atmosphere. Probe deployment is targeted for summer 2011 with the real-time data available to for the public to view.
