A Soil Boring Tool for Frost Depth Determination
Abstract:Measurements of depth of soil freezing are of importance in any complete consideration of vegetational influence on surface run-off. They provide a means of evaluating the relative effectiveness of vegetation in reducing or preventing soil freezing with resultant high run-off rates. To date there has been developed no satisfactory means of measuring depth of soil freezing on the scale required for adequate sampling. The following article describes a tool and method which with development to suit particular edaphic and climatic conditions, is believed to promise such a satisfactory means.
