Abstract:
WATER_BALANCE_NETWORK_IN.SHP is a point shapefile that shows the locations of thirteen meteorological, soil-water, and groundwater monitoring stations maintained by personnel of the Center for Geospatial Data Analysis, Indiana Geological & Water Survey (IGS). Each of the monitoring stations has been located in a unique hydrogeologic setting in Indiana. Meteorological sensors include tipping bucket rain gages, air temperature and relative humidity sensors, pyranometers and net radiometers (used to measure natural solar radiation fluxes), and anemometers. Unsaturated-zone instrumentation is installed at nine of the glaciated terrain sites and includes soil-moisture and temperature sensors (at most sites, located at depths of one foot to six feet below the ground surface). Monitoring wells are also installed with pressure transducers to track shallow water-table fluctuations at stations where soil-moisture sensors are installed. The data that are collected provide essential information for expanding the understanding of soil moisture and climate interactions. Attributes include station names, soil texture, soil parent material, landscape description, vegetation, and a Website URL that allows users to access real-time water-balance data for each individual monitoring station.
Purpose:
The layer was created to provide locations of the Indiana Water Balance Network monitoring stations in Indiana, suitable for use in GIS.
Supplemental_Information:
WATER_BALANCE_NETWORK_IN.SHP was updated on September 12, 2017 with the addition of a new monitoring site (Brownsburg_N2) as well as with updated attribute information for each site.

Process_Description:
CGDA/IGS personnel collected GPS location information at each of the twelve locations of the monitoring stations of the Indiana Water Balance Network. Using ArcMap, an Esri point shapefile named "WATER_BALANCE_NETWORK_IN.SHP" was created using the GPS locations. The attribute table was then populated with information specific to each site, including site name, descriptions of soil, soil parent material, landform and vegetation, and a URL that allows users to access real-time weather and water-flux data for each individual monitoring station.
