Daily soil temperature records (2019-2020) for active layer sites (GEC-1901 and GEC-1902) in the Argentinian Andes at 32°S


Soil temperature (°C) was collected in the uppermost levels of the active layer of "El Candidato" rock glacier, from 2019 to 2020. "El Candidato" is an active rock glacier placed in the Argentinian Central Andes at 4012 m a.s.l. (-31.898672°S; -70.178486°W). The purpose of the data set was to analyze the ground temperature in different pits, in terms of active layer depth estimation. The dataset includes the temperatures of two observation sites (GEC-1901 and GEC-1902) at different depths: 0 cm; 25 cm; 50 cm and 90 cm. The iButtons DS1922L (Maxim Integrated) took 6 measurements per day, at 02:00, 06:00, 10:00, 14:00, 18:00 and 22:00 hours (GMT-3), from 23/03/2019 to 02/03/2020. Soil temperature was calculated as the average of the six daily data.
