Abstract

Discussion of the data recorded in a research field at the University of Michigan Matthaei Botanical Gardens. The data set shows the low frequency effects of upward soil water advection increasing the soil temperature and modulating the electrolyte concentration. These observations also demonstrate that soil freezing processes have two distinct regimes dominated by (1) early soil water advection toward the frost front from below and (2) downward expulsion of electrolyte-rich water as ice fills the pore space. These two processes augmented by local evaporation produce two distinct near surface C-index signatures of serial diurnal frost
