Tb was measured at 96 min intervals, and soil temperatures were measured only at 09:00 h during this period. Air temperature was measured twice daily but statistics are given for 09:00 h temperatures only. For comparison column 2 shows statistics for Tbvalues measured at the same time as the other variables. Soil temperature was measured at 10, 20 and 50 cm. All environmental temperatures are from a Bureau of Meteorology observation station approximately 4.5 km from the field site.
