The Glassier Ranch Station was installed and began collecting data in the summer of 2014. Located at an elevation of around 6,460 feet (1,970m), the station is in a riparian zone near the Roaring Fork River and is surround by tall grasses. This area was heavily impacted by ranching and agriculture previous to its current ownership by Pitkin County Open Space and Trails, and its soil moisture content may still be impacted by nearby irrigation. This station is powered by solar panel.
Soil at a glance:
Sandy Loam | 33.6% organic matter | 9 ppm NO3 | 100 ppm P | pH 6.3
Air Temperature | Relative Humidity | Soil Moisture at 2, 8, 20, and 40in (5, 20, and 51, 102cm) | Soil Temperature at 8in (20cm)
Data are logged every 20 minutes and shared cellularly every 4 hours. The live data found on hobolink.com have not been checked for outliers, soil moisture has not been calibrated, and rain gage readings may not be reliable when weather is below freezing. Archived data have been cleaned and calibrated.
This station was funded by: Pitkin County Open Space and Trails. It was installed and is operated by AGCI.
