We are happy to announce that ISMN has been successfully transferred from TU Vienna to it's new host ICWRGC/BfG in Germany this week! So data are served from there now. The official launch event of ISMN in Germany will follow in 2023. We appreciate Irene Himmelbauer, Daniel  Aberer, Ivana Petrakovic, Elmar Sönser, Lukas Schremmer, Wouter Dorigo, Fay Boehmer, Kasjen Kramer, Tunde Olarinoye, Wolfgang Korres, Matthias Zink, Stephan Dietrich and everyone involved in the succeful transfer.

The Texan network TxSON is now available within the ISMN! The network consists of 41 stations located at various locations around Texas measuring soil moisture and soil temperature in 5 cm depth. Data is available from 30th of September 2014 until now. 

We would kindly thank Todd Caldwell, Bridget Scanlon, Tara Bongiovianni, Aaron Averett, Bisett Young and Michael Young for providing us with the data and all the relevant information for the implementation. 

The 4 stations within the network STEMS_CNR (STEMS) has been updated until 2022-09-26. 

We would kindly thank Giorgio Capello and Marcella Biddoccu for providing us with the new data sets. 

The new dataviewer is now live at ISMN!

It offers new features like the possibility to download the complete ISMN archive more quickly - without the results having to be generated first.

New options were added to filter data for climate class, land cover type, sensor depth and quality flags. In addition the user interface was upgraded (visualisation, download history overview).

Please note that by default only "soil moisture" data is downloaded, if you would like additional variables, you can add them in the "more options" menu.

More information can be found here.

We are very grateful for any feedback also if you encounter any bugs or have ideas on improvements! (ismn@geo.tuwien.ac.at; ismn@bafg.de)


The new station "5.7.0 As" of the Norwegian network NVE is now included within the ISMN. Data is available from November 2017 until December 2021.

We would like to thank Fred Wenger for providing the new data!
