Frost Depth in Forest and Open in Connecticut
Abstract:The question of the influence of a forest on its environment is a live and important one. More so in recent years because of extensive forestry programs to reduce soil erosion, regulate run-off, and to reduce wind velocities. The influence of forests on frost depth has far-reaching implications in connection with most of these programs. Quantitative data are presented to show that frost penetration is about twice as deep in the open as in the forest.
