Measurement of soil temperature is recommended by the World Meteorological Organisation at depths of 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 cm. Proper installation of soil temperature sensors requires a lot of effort. Once installed, sensors are usually left alone without calibration for a long time. This means that the sensor and cabling should be very reliable and stable over time.
Hukseflux offers such sensors, with self-test and for use in extreme environments. Using self-testing, the user no longer needs to take sensors to the laboratory to verify their stable performance. The result is a much improved accuracy & quality assurance of the measurement relative to measurements with conventional sensor types.
