Soil Moisture and Temperatures

Soil sensors are buried in the ground at the levels indicated below.
Each level has a temperature probe and a moisture sensor.

Moisture is measured in ' cb ' with range of 0 to 200
where 0 being totally saturated and anything over 100 being extremely dry.

Random Weather Facts

The heat index combines air temperature and dew point in an attempt to determine the human-perceived equivalent temperature - how hot it feels. The human body normally cools itself by sweating, which evaporates and carries heat away from the body. However, when the relative humidity is high the evaporation rate is reduced, so heat is removed from the body at a lower rate causing it to retain more heat than it would in dry air.
