Experimental Gridded Soil Moisture Products 

These experimental images are created showing gridded soil moisture at varying depths across the ABRFC area. They are created empirically from our hydrologic model data, and based on a priori grids of the Sac-SMA hydrologic distributed model used at ABRFC. They are not directly based on any measured data, but derived from soil types, land use, and antecedent precipitation.

Normals are based on a 20 year climatology (1996-2015). The Difference Graphics take the current percent saturation and subtracts the normal percent value to try to show a deviation from normal. This may be helpful to see areas that are abnormally dry or wet.
