This data set provides level 2 (L2) hourly volumetric (cm3/cm3) soil moisture profiles from in-ground sensors at seven North American sites as part of the Airborne Microwave Observatory of Subcanopy and Subsurface (AirMOSS) project. Three profiles were installed at each site, sampling at seven different depths per profile (2 cm to 80 cm). Initial sampling began at three sites in September 2011 and additional sites were added during 2012 and 2013. All sampling concluded in December 2015. The AirMOSS project used an airborne radar instrument to estimate root-zone soil moisture at 10 study sites across North America. These in-ground soil moisture data were collected to calibrate and validate the AirMOSS data.
