Data for the article: "Root zone soil moisture estimation with Random Forests"
each station, daily in situ measurements of surface soil moisture
(SSM) at 5 cm and zone weighted depth-averaged root zone soil
moisture (RZSM) are given. The meteorological conditions are obtained
from daily datasets available from KNMI. First, the measurements from KNMI meteorological stations are interpolated in order to get
spatially distributed values covering the study sites. The values
from the interpolated maps were extracted for each point in the Raam
The vegetation characteristics are represented by leaf area index (LAI) obtained from MODIS. The crops at each station for each year are obtained from fieldwork data. The BOdemFysische Eenheden Kaart (BOFEK2012, Wosten et al., 2013), which is a map of soil hydro-physical properties for the Netherlands, was the basis for the information on the soil groups at the study sites.
