to the geographical area defined by those soil texture classes. Observations of volumetric soil moisture, which align with the soil moisture analyses, come from the Texas A&M University North American Soil Moisture Database (NASMD; http://soilmoisture.tamu.edu ), which harmonizes and quality controls several in situ soil moisture observing platforms. We considered only stations from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Soil Climate Analysis Network (SCAN; Schaefer et al. 2007 ) and from the

U.S. Army Dugway Proving Ground (DPG) was selected as the field site. This site has the advantages of a large spatial extent, richness in mountain weather phenomena, interesting climatological regimes, distinct (but few) land-use types, an existing instrumentation network, and unique logistical support. A repertoire of measurement tools were used to observe processes over a wide range of space–time scales, which was augmented by model evaluations and improvements. This paper presents an overview
