CT 10 cm +- 3cm
  • Label: CT 10 cm +- 3cm
  • Definition: Control soil temperature at 10 plus or minus 3 cm. Since the probes sometimes changed depth with frost heaving only data with probes within 3 cm of 10 cm of soil surface were used.

  • Precision: Not specified
  • Missing values:
    • #N/A = Missing or Not Measured
CT rep used
  • Label: CT rep used
  • Definition: The control temperature probe used for the daily average. In the original data logger files the 10 cm probes are labeled CT1 10 cm and CT2 10 cm.
  • Type: Nominal

  • Type: Nominal
  • Missing values: None specified
NP 10cm +- 3 cm
  • Label: NP 10cm +- 3 cm
  • Definition: Control soil temperature at 10 cm plus or minus 3 cm. Since the probes sometimes changed depth with frost heaving only data with probes within 3 cm of 10 cm of soil surface were used.
