Water Software > Groundwater Software > MoisturEC
MoisturEC is an R-based GUI used to combine electrical conductivity (EC) data with point moisture measurements for an updated moisture estimate capitalizing on the accuracy of point moisture measurements and the spatial coverage of EC data. It is assumed that the EC data have been inverted already and that EC values correspond to points in space.
MoisturEC version 1.0 (February 28, 2018) is the initial public release.
This USGS software has two citations associated with it.
In instances where an author is citing use of this software, it would be appropriate to cite both the report documenting the code and the specific software release version that was used.
