Short summary
We measure soil water at points (point scale) and try to understand how they vary over the landscape. Previous studies identified a statistical relationship between these scales only at the surface and not at depths. This study found that the relationship stands at different depths. The relationship was very similar at different depths in drier season or in late summer and fall. A less similar relationship was observed between surface and subsurface layers in spring or in wetter seasons.
