Description :
This study uses a hydrologic/soil-temperature model to examine patterns of winter soil temperatures across southern Michigan, and in so doing sheds light on the meteorologic variables that affect soil freezing. Spatial patterns of soil freezing were studied for 5 uniquely different winter seasons (1951-1952, 1952-1953, 1953-1954, 1976-1977, and 1979-1980) that represent the extremes of weather for the region : various combinations of cold versus warm, snowy versus dry. This approach provides information not only on spatial patterns of soil freezing, but also on the interannual variability and, most importantly, pedo-climatic extremes.
