Soil temperatures for the snow manipulation study — Resource Gradient Experiment

Data in the KBS LTER core database may not be published without written permission of the lead investigator or project director Full terms of use

Soil temperature measurements were taken with a Hobo pendant logger at 5 cm below the soil surface. The area used for the study was rain-fed F6 R3 plot of the resource gradient study.

This datatable is part of the Snow manipulation experiment, effect on soil trace gas production dataset.

This dataset contains data from Leilei Ruan’s thesis work focused the effect of winter thaws and snow cover on soil N2O fluxes.
