Surface In-Situ Networks
The Texas High Plains is the most intensively irrigated region in the state. High quality, local meteorological data are needed for accurate irrigation scheduling. The data also are critical for management and for interpreting results from the state’s foremost agricultural research programs. The data are essential to the application of numerous agricultural management crop related and water use models. The Texas High Plains ET Networks (North Plains and South Plains networks) were established in the 1990’s to provide convenient and timely access to agriculturally based meteorological data for use by producers, agricultural researchers, and others interested in agriculturally relevant meteorological data.
