The soil water and temperature system (SWATS) is designed to make hourly measurements of the soil temperature, soil water potential, and fractional water content of the soil at two profiles of eight depths at SGP Extended Facilities only.

SWATS systems were installed at all of the ARM Southern Great Plains Extended Facilities, except Okmulgee EF21. The SWATS systems were replaced with the STAMP systems in late 2015.
