MoisturEC: R-based GUI to combine electrical conductivity data with point moisture measurements

Overview of MoisturEC

 [ Screenshot of moisturEC interface showing 2D plots of results and error estimates ]

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.

How to Cite

This USGS software has two citations associated with it.

  1. The report citation is for the original report or article documenting the underlying theory, methods, instructions, and (or) applications at the time the initial version of the software was released. This digital object identifier (DOI) is for the report.
  2. The software release citation is for the software/code itself (now referred to by USGS as a "Software Release") and references a specific version of the code and associated release date. This DOI links to the code.

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.
