What is Dolbear's Law?
Dolbear's law explains the relationship between cricket chirps and temperature. Temperature can be estimated within one degree with this mathematical formula:
Temperature in Fahrenheit = 40 + c
c = chirps counted in a 15 second period
Example: A cricket chips 23 times in a 15 second period:
T = 40 + 23
Calculated out this gives a temperature of 63 degrees Fahrenheit.
