Welker IPY snow fence shrub site soil temperatures and soil water content Toolik, Alaska 2008.

Abstract: 

Soil temperature from three locations on the eastern side of the Toolik River where by snow fences were established as part of IPY. This is a study of how soil temperatures at 10 cm and soil moisture change across the summer at our IPY snow fence site .

Methods: 

This is soil temperature from three locations on the eastern side of the Toolik River where by snow fences were established as part of IPY. Measurements were taken at 3 locations (3 replicates) with four treatments, control, drift, drift and shoveled and drift, shoveled and watered ( C, D, DS, DSW). The three replicates were called: upper, south, north (U, S, N).

At approximately biweekly periods we have measured soil temperature (oC) at 10 cm using a hand held thermometer probe inserted into the soil and we used a Water sense probe (dialectic method) to measure soil water content by volume. These measurements were taken in conjunction with our periodic CO2 flux measurements.
