Understanding Heat Transfer in the Shallow Subsurface Using Temperature Observa ons

  title={Understanding Heat Transfer in the Shallow Subsurface Using Temperature Observa ons},
  author={Susan C. Steele-Dunne and Jasmeet Judge and Nick van de Giesen},
In this study, we analyzed the poten al of distributed soil temperature and soil moisture observa ons for iden fying the spa otemporal variability of near-surface water and energy fl uxes. We studied the soil energy balance using soil moisture and temperature data collected during the Second Microwave Water and Energy Balance Experiment (MicroWEX-2) in Florida. We found that heat transfer in the shallow subsurface could not be explained by conduc on. Sinks and sources of energy in each soil… CONTINUE READING
