ClimateBasis Zackenberg - Soil temperature - Soil temperature, 60cm - 60min average (°C)

Soil temperature, 60cm - 60min average (°C) Soil temperature:Soil temperature ClimateBasis Zackenberg:The ClimateBasis programme monitors climate and hydrology in Zackenberg, Kobbefjord and Disko (Qeqertarsuaq) and is run by Asiaq - Greenland Survey. The collected data build base-line information on climate variability and trends for all the other sub-programmes within GEM and serve as a trustworthy foundation for adaptation strategies for the Greenlandic society. The stations are embedded in Asiaq’s extensive climate and hydrology monitoring network. Furthermore, the run-off data is delivered to the World Hydrological Cycle Observing System (WHYCOS) and the Global Runoff Data Centre (GRDC) networks.

August 2006: all sensors were replaced, new sensors installed in a new hole. 2013: Change of measuring method in logger program (from 250 Hz to 50 Hz) in August caused a shift in data.
