Soil Temperature and Moisture ModelEntry ID: USDA_ARS_STM2
Abstract: The Soil Temperature and Moisture Model model predicts the soil temperature and moisture conditions based on very limited user inputs. The input requirements are:
1. A general soil characterization (soil texture and organic matter content)
2. Daily weather information limited to maximum and minimum air temperatures with daily precipitation.
