Short distance (sample scale)
Significant correlation scale of 0.2-
0.5m. None up to 10m. Apparently
unrelated to vegetation patterns.
Also unrelated to SM status. Soils?
Implication: Hand held sampling is
unrepeatable at the hillslope scale,
though fixed sites indicate
significant spatial correlation at
More handheld sampling planned
in March for the 10-1000m scale.
If SM correlation can be used as
surrogate for soil variability what
drives the soil variability?
Implications for hydrology?
