This dataset includes volumetric water content (soil moisture, in cubic meter per cubic meter), soil temperature (degrees C) and soil electrical conductivity (mS/cm) measurements from four monitoring locations at the Virginia Agricultural site (Metompkin Farm) for the CZNet Coastal Cluster. Soil moisture, temperature and conductivity were measured continuously in the field at 15-minute intervals with METER Group TEROS 12 sensors and ZL6 dataloggers. All four locations have sensors measuring from both a shallow (0.1-0.2 m) and deep (0.2-0.3 m) depth interval. No correction was done to the reported values. Gaps in the record are indicated by blank values.
