Title: Soil Temperature and Moisture, Kougarok Road Mile Marker 64, Seward Peninsula, Alaska, beginning 2016

Abstract

Daily averages of soil temperature and moisture measured once every hour at different heights. The "vertical_offset" field represents the heights. Deployed at each site is an Onset HOBO U30 data logger with five smart temperature sensors and three smart soil moisture sensors (10HS). The logger is enclosed in a custom box equipped with a solar panel on the lid. The sensors were installed by excavating a soil pit approximately 50 x 50 cm, to a depth of 50 cm or until frozen ground was encountered. At the bottom of the pit a small hole (~2cm diameter) was drilled to a depth of 1.5 m or as deep as possible, to install the 2 deepest temperature sensors. The remaining three temperature and moisture sensors were installed into the soil pit face (uphill side if possible) and the pit was carefully refilled.
