A portable instrument for determining soil temperatures
A Portable instrument using thermocouples for measuring soil temperatures has been designed and constructed. The Instrument as constructed can record temperatures at depths of 5, 10, 15 and 30 cm and also at depths of 10,15, 20 and 35,or15, 20, 25 and 40 cm by inserting it into the soil to different points. The instrument can be installed by simply driving it into the soil without materially disturbing the soil packing or the vegetation cover and reliable readings can be obtained within a short time of its insertion unlike in the case of ordinary soil thermometers.
