Multimodel Surface Water Monitor

The plots below show the current percentiles for soil moisture, with respect to the climatological period (1916-2004 for CONUS and 1926-2004 for Mexico), for the following models:

Note: percentiles are computed for current day with respect to grand distribution of values in the 5-day window centered on current day over the climatological period (1916-2004 for continental US and 1926-2004 for Mexico). This is also true of the multimodel ensemble average, i.e. first we compute the average of the percentiles of the individual models, then we compute the percentile of this average with respect to the historical distribution of the average.
