2009 Hiberation Site Locations
Hibernation Temperature Charts Soil temperatures were recorded with stationary loggers buried very close to the hibernation site at a depth of approximately 6-8 inches. Air temperatures were recorded with loggers placed nearby approximately 4 1/2 feet off the ground, in solar shelters. Logged low air temperatures are accurate, highs recorded in the spring were occassionally influenced by direct sunlight (sunflecks) coming through deteriorating sun shades.
