The coupling between air and ground temperatures in the mountains of southern Norway was examined using 12 shallow boreholes drilled in August 2008. Three borehole arrays (at Juvvass, Jetta and Tron), each with boreholes at different elevations, were established along a continentality gradient. Here, the AA. present the first two years of air and ground temperature measurements and discuss the influences of air temperatures, ground surface characteristics (snow conditions, sediments/bedrock, vegetation) and topographic parameters on the ground thermal regime
