|Digital Multi-Day Soil Temperature Protocols - Introduction|
The purpose of this resource is to introduct details on how to use digital soil thermometers. A digital thermometer is used to measure current temperatures as well as daily minimum and maximum temperatures. One temperature probe is placed at a depth of 5 cm in the soil while another is installed at a 50 cm depth. The daily minimum and maximum temperatures are stored by the instrument for a period of up to six days and need to be read and recorded at least this often to avoid loss of data.
