International recognition for a research that we have been doing for the past 5 years – Research on soil moisture and satellite remote sensing (I acknowledge Kang Chuen Siang, my student who has just completed his PhD ).
Now the data is available on “International Soil Moisture Network” (ISMN)

The first and only country in SEA to have such data. We name it MySMnet (Malaysia Soil Moisture Network).

ISMN is coordinated by the Global Energy and Water Exchanges Project (GEWEX) in cooperation with the Group of Earth Observation (GEO) and the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS).

MySMNet provides free soil moisture and soil temperature data at surface (5 cm), 50 m and 100 m depth on hourly basis.

Please feel free to download (it is free) and use the data sets for any scientific works.
