THE TARRAWARRA SOIL MOISTURE DATA SET
Tarrawarra data set is a detailed set of hydrological data from a catchment
experiment that aimed to investigate the spatial pattern of soil moisture
at the small catchment scale. A variety of data was collected which we
believe is (at least in 1997) unique in the high level of detail it provides
and in the range of catchment conditions it covers. We are making this
data set freely available for scientific and educational purposes. We ask
that any users of the data should acknowledge the source of the data by
referring to Western and Grayson, 1998
(Water Resources Research, 34(10): pp2765-2768)
. We have put a great
deal of scientific effort and many (at least 1 person years worth) hours
out in the field collecting this data and have made it available because
we believe that the current lack of such detailed data is a significant
impediment to the progress of hydrology. If you use this data, please drop
us a line and let us know what you have done and what you have published.
We would appreciate copies of any papers in which the data is used and
are happy to discuss
the possibility of collaborative analyses if you think an "on the ground"
insight into the catchment's behaviour would be useful.
We have applied the Thales model to the Tarrawarra catchment.
This application is described in Western and
Grayson (2000). A movie (15MB)
of the model results is available.
