The investigation of soil temperature  based on snow cover and soil frost is followable in a microclimatic environment by the interactions of higher influencing factors. The temporal, spatial, qualitative and quantitative distribution of the seasonal snow covering determines the exposure of the near-surface soil layer to the external air temperature. The cold microclimate of the Mohos sinkhole (Hungary) makes the research area the natural laboratory to analyze the atmospheric-surface interactions, based on snow depth.
