Figure S1. Site-specific estimated bulk soil thermal properties, averaged over 2000–2009 for three levels in the soil, the O-horizon (top 5 cm, white bars), the A-horizon (variable depth, grey bars), and the B-horizon (variable depth, black bars).

Figure S2. Coefficients of determination (r2) and root mean squared deviations (RMSD) for predictions of air temperature 0·5 cm above the ground compared to observations at the same height (‘terrestrial minima’).

Figure S3. Coefficients of determination (r2) and root mean squared deviations (RMSD) for predictions of hourly soil temperature compared to observed soil temperatures, for each depth at which observations were available. Results are presented scenario 4, explained in the main text.

Figures S4–S46. Three years (2007–2009) of hourly predictions and observations of surface and soil temperatures for all 43 test sites. The top panels show the simulated air temperature 0·5 cm above the ground (black lines), the observed air temperature 0·5 cm above the ground (red circles – ‘terrestrial minimum’ observations) and the soil surface temperature (grey lines). In all other panels the black lines are predictions and the red lines are observations.

Table S1. Depth-specific summary statistics (coefficient of determination r2, root mean squared deviation RMSD and the normalized root mean squared deviation RMSD%) for comparisons of observed and predicted three-hourly soil temperatures. Results are presented for five different modelling scenarios, as described in the text (see 'Results').

Table S2. Depth-specific summary statistics (coefficient of determination r2, root mean squared deviation RMSD and the normalized root mean squared deviation RMSD%) for comparisons of observed and predicted minimum (Tmin) and maximum (Tmax) soil temperatures. Results are presented for five different modelling scenarios, as well as for the statistical Horton and Corkrey model driven by AWAP gridded data and BoM raw weather station data, as described in the text (see 'Results').
