A Distributed Temperature Profiling System for Vertically and Laterally Dense Acquisition of Soil and Snow Temperature: Supporting Data Baptiste Dafflon, Stijin Wielandt, John Lamb, Ian Shirley, and Sebastian Uhlemann

Short summary
This study presents the development and validation of a novel acquisition system for measuring finely resolved depth profiles of soil and snow temperature at multiple locations. Results indicate that the system reliably captures the dynamics in snow thickness, as well as soil freezing and thawing depth, enabling advances in understanding the intensity and timing in surface processes and their impact on subsurface thermohydrological regimes.
