This project is on the influence of asphalt on surrounding short-grass soil temperature. The data that was taken supported the hypothesis: The closer the soil is to the asphalt the warmer the soil will be. Then after the data was taken it was recorded. The problem of the project is, "Should a family plant their plants closer to the asphalt or farther from the asphalt?" Finally, after review of the data, the closer the soil is to the asphalt the warmer the soil is. The soil is warmer because of the albedo on the asphalt which radiates heat to the short-grass area that is around it.
