soil water content unit

Added by Elham Fakharizade over 1 year ago

Hello

I want to analyses soil water content (W__so ). Unit of W_so is (m). Would you please explain me how can I convert (m) to (m3/m3). Can I suppose that depth of water in soil is for 1 m2 area?

Thanks in advance,
Elham

Hi,
not sure but as far as I know, the TERRA-ML model gives soil moisture (W_SO) for each layer. Dividing this by the layer thickness (in meter as well), you should get the volum. soil water content for a specific layer.

Does this give you reasonable numbers?

Best regards
Andreas
