Soil temperature plays a key role in regulating important biological processes in soil. The temperature of the soil varies significantly with time of year, time of day, location, and depth. For many purposes one can acquire sufficient soil temperature data by referring to the numerous websites that provide current and historical soil temperature data. In other cases direct measurements of soil temperature are needed.
