Hydrometeorological monitoring for water balance determination at plot scale


To provide adequate answers to recurring problems in land and water resources management, nowadays the use of physically based models is widespread. The reliability of the responses of this kind of model is closely linked to the precision with which model parameters are determined, such as soil hydraulic characteristics and meteorological variables. In this work, we set up a complete station for the monitoring of both meteorological and soil variables, as well as a soil hydraulic characterization. The experimental site shows vertic characteristics and is in Guardia Perticara, Basilicata region, Italy.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
