Printer-friendly version

Soil moisture matters – this was now also confirmed by NOAA in the latest 2014 State of the Climate / BAMS report.

We are particularly proud to announce that the NOAA climate office selected our soil moisture contribution as one of their climate highlights.

Adapted from the 2014 BAMS State of the Climate report, the map shows 2014 soil moisture across the globe compared to the average from 1991-2012. The map shows locations with below-average soil moisture (brown) and above-average soil moisture (blue-green) in 2014. While slightly wetter than 2013, the global average soil moisture in 2014 was near-normal.
