Abstract

The dataset contains the experimental field data coming from the automatic monitoring of the annual hydrological response of a shallow deposit in loose pyroclastic soils located in a mountainous area of Campania, Southern Italy. The monitoring station is installed at about 650 m a.s.l. along the northern slope of mount Cornito, about 2 km east of the town of Cervinara, that in December 1999 was involved in a rainfall-induced flowslide. The collected field data consist in: i) precipitations (measured by a rain gauge), ii) soil moisture contents (measured by TDR probes) and iii) soil matric suctions (measured by 'Jet-fill” tensiometers). Suction and moisture sensors have been installed at the same depths and connected to a Campbell Scientific Inc. CR-1000 Data Logger, that allows the automatic acquisition and storage of data. Furthermore, the results of some laboratory flume tests carried out on a small-scale slope, reconstituted with volcanic ashesfrom the same siteand from a nearby slope, subjected to an artificial rainwater infiltration, are attached too. Soil matric suction and moisture content were respectively measured by a miniaturised tensiometer and a TDR probe installed close to each other.
