The Roaring Fork Observation Network Stations Data
All data gathered from AGCI's own soil moisture network, the iRON, is intended for free public use. Live data gathered from AGCI's soil and climate monitoring stations, which is uncalibrated and unreviewed for outliers, can be found through pages housing information about individual stations. These stations measure soil temperature (8in/20cm depth), soil moisture (2, 8, 20 inch (5, 20, 51cm) depths), air temperature, relative humidity, and rain. Some select stations also measure snow depth. Rain is measured by a tipping bucket rain gauge, and measurements taken during freezing months when snow is present are unreliable. Data are collected either every 20 or every 30 minutes and transmitted to the database every four hours.
For data from the Roaring Fork Valley collected by agencies other than AGCI visit Further Resources.

AGCI has become an intellectual proving ground, a ferment for new ideas and concepts, and a place where the different disciplines actually talk, and progress. Hal Harvey
