Provenance & quality

Measurements of thaw depth were performed using a robust metallic graduated probe next to the locations where soil respiration was measured (see dataset of autotrophic and heterotrophic respiration). The probe was inserted into the soil to the point at which it was impeded by frozen soil. The depth was then recorded in cm.
