|Digital Multi-Day Max/Min/Current Air and Soil Temperatures Protocol|
The purpose of this resource is to record daily measurements of maximum, minimum, and current air and soil temperatures at a common site. One temperature probe is placed inside the instrument shelter while another is installed at a 10 cm depth in the soil. A digital thermometer is used to measure current temperatures as well as daily minimum and maximum temperatures. The daily minimum and maximum temperatures are stored by the instrument for a period of six days and need to be read and recorded within this span of time.
