We thank Bob Munson of Munson Farms, Boulder, Colorado for hosting this experiment. UNAVCO installed the instruments and archived the data.

GPS scattering statistic (MP1rms) compared with corn height and vegetation water content. Measured soil moisture and precipitation are given in the fourth panel. The corn harvest - shown as the gray boxed region - lasted two weeks. The x-axis is day of year in 2009. More details are available in Small et al., [2010].
