GeoBasis Zackenberg - Soil properties - ZEROCALM-2_lower_Soil_temperature

Soil temperature is measured in +0.03, 0, 0, 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1, 1.25, 1.50 and 2 meters below the surface in a water logged Eriophorum fen, south of the meteorological station M2 and within the ZEROCALM-2 active layer monitoring plot. The site is called 'ZEROCALM-2_lower'. Temperature is recorded every hour until 2015-09-01, from which point temperature is recorded every 6 hrs. Measurements were initiated in september 2012. Blank cells are missing data. Temperature is measured with Geo-Precision thermistor strings. From 2015-10-27 and onwards temperature sensors in 0.5 - 2 meters are broken. Soil properties:Soil properties GeoBasis Zackenberg:The GeoBasis monitoring programme focuses on selected abiotic characteristics in order to describe the state of Greenlandic terrestrial environments and their potential feedback effects in a changing climate. Monitored plot data is up-scaled to a landscape level and is used to improve ecosystem models to be able to quantify these feedback mechanisms. The GeoBasis programme provides an active response to recommendations in international assessments such as ACIA and SWIPA; and is continuously being adapted based on AMAP and other international founded recommendations. Furthermore, the GeoBasis programme is directly involved in several international networks and research projects (e.g. the Circumpolar Active Layer Monitoring (CALM) programme, the Nordic Centre of Excellence DEFROST, the Danish Centre of Excellence CENPERM, the EU-projects PAGE21 and INTERACT, and the Arctic Research Centre at Aarhus University). The GeoBasis programme is divided into a number of sub-groups, including:
