Title: Near-surface, soil, and air temperature data acquired across multiple locations in the Tehachapi mountains at Tejon Ranch, California, 2011-2017
Alternate Identifier: doi:10.6073/pasta/976d60965e74c4a564fdd58edfacaa28
Abstract:

These temperature records were collected as part of a larger study relating microclimates to tree seedling survival in southern California mountains. These temperature records are for studies in the Tehachapi mountains at Tejon Ranch (Lat 34.967, Long -118.583, elevation 1600-1700 m, www.tejonranch.com). Temperature sensors were located at 23 sites across the Tehachapi foothills. Sites were selected to sample topographic variation in surface and air temperatures within a narrow range of elevations on northeast to southwest-facing slopes, ridges and valleys. To characterize surface temperature variation within a site, 21 sensors were arranged in an identical pattern around and in six, 5x5 m experimental gardens. An additional 18 sensors were placed along three transects over the landscape running N-S. They were placed strategically to sample topographic inflection points (hill tops and valley bottoms) as well as north and south facing slopes. Temperatures were recorded on a 10 or 20-minute interval, depending on the sensor. using HOBO (Onset, www.onsetcomp.com) devices.

Methods and Protocols

These methods, instrumentation and/or protocols apply to all data in this dataset:

Protocols and/or Procedures
Description:

Temperatures were recorded using HOBO (Onset, www.onsetcomp.com) model U23-004 (single thermocouple) and U23-003 (double thermocouple) sensors, which have an operating range of -40 to 70C and accuracy of +/-0.21C from 0 to 50C. Sensor integrity was checked for 24 hrs in a constant-temperature environment prior to field deployment. Sensors were suspended 5 cm above the soil surface with vertical station sensors suspended at 5 cm, 50 cm, and 2 m above the soil surface at select landscape locations. Weather stations had additional temperature sensors at -10 cm (soil temp), 5 cm, and 1 m. The air temperature sensors were shielded from direct sunlight by inverted white styrene funnels 10 cm in diameter. For brevity we refer to these near-surface air temperatures (5cm) as "surface temperatures" but emphasize that these were not taken on the ground surface. Temperatures were recorded at 10-minute intervals for single thermocouple sensors and at 20-minute intervals for double thermocouple sensors (vertical stations 5 cm and 2 m). Data were downloaded manually twice over the course of the year and underwent extensive automated and manual quality control.

Additional Info

Additional Information:
 

This data is part of a larger dataset of soil, near-surface, and temperature data, including meteorological data and seedling data. These datasets were acquired across multiple locations in southern California mountains from 2011 to 2017. All project data and down-scaled climate grids of the region are available at http://m2m.biogeog.ucsb.edu.

Funding was provided by the U.S. National Science Foundation Macrosystems Biology Program, project EF-1065864, "Do microenvironments govern macroecology?" and by NSF EAGER-NEON Grant EF-1550653, "How do microscale biophysical processes mediate ecosystem shifts during climate change-driven drought?"

We thank the USDA Forest Service (in particular our collaborator Malcolm North), the Tejon Ranch Company, the Tejon Ranch Conservancy, and UCSB's Earth Research Institute for their assistance and support.
