Group: Summary

   This data set presents half-hourly measurements of soil temperatures at depths 
   of 0 to 60 cm, together with meteorological data (air temperature, 
   precipitation, pressure, relative humidity, wind speed/direction, solar 
   radiation, longwave radiation) and snow depth.  The data were collected in 
   sandy loam soil at South Royalton, Vermont, between October 1989 and September 
   1993. The data document seasonal changes in soil temperature, including the 
   development of a frozen layer and occasionally a transient thawed layer at the 
   surface. Data are available via ftp.
