South Mountain Weather Station Highlights

The South Mountain Weather Station (SMWS) was installed to provide meteorological and soil moisture and temperature data as part of a watershed health and restoration program overseen by the Estancia Basin Watershed Health, Restoration and Monitoring Steering Committee (EBWHRMSC). The SMWS is within the Edgewood Soil and Water Conservation District, on the private property, near South Mountain, Santa Fe County, New Mexico, approximately 19 km (12 miles) north of the town of Edgewood. The purpose of this station is to help assess water infiltration through soil depths, relate that to meteorological variables, and then compare two measured locations to determine the effects of forest thinning projects on groundwater recharge.
