The AGCI iRON dataset is drawn from the interactive Roaring Fork Observation Network (iRON), located in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. This dataset includes recurrent observations from a set of 10 stations distributed across the elevational gradient of the Roaring Fork Watershed, ranging from 1,890m to 3,680m in elevation and representing a variety of ecosystem types. Each station collects data on soil moisture (5cm, 20,cm, 50cm), soil temperature, and basic weather parameters. All data are open access for public use. Data provided here have undergone some basic QA/QC and calibration transformations. Further information about the project can be found at
