Dataset: Upper Trailer Soil Temperature
Soil temperature data was acquired using a mechanical chart recorder of soil temperatures with thermistors at 5 cm and 20 cm soil depths at a site approximately 20 feet west of the Upper Trailer on the Jornada.
Site is located in the creosote zone in an open area between shrubs 20 feet west of the LTER Upper Trailer and about 1/2 mile S-SE from the LTER Weather Station.
Charts were changed weekly and mechanical winder wound, the pen inked, and beginning and ending dates/times indicated on the appropriate chart.
