Group: Summary

   This dataset includes ground temperature data from coarse morainal (till) soil 
   in a tundra area, on a 2-degree slope with rapid drainage, 45 m asl, at an 
   undisturbed site with about 10 percent vegetation cover. A data logger was 
   used with a sampling rate of 60 days; 1-day averaging period of individual 
   measurements.
