Description
Soil heat flux is commonly measured using a soil heat flux
transducer (plate.) The soil heat flux transducer should be made
as thin as possible and constructed of a material that does not
absorb water and has a thermal conductivity that does not impede
heat flow. A heat flow transducer (Model HFT-1) built by
Micromet systems is constructed of high thermal conductivity
epoxy to prevent ground potential pickup. This instrument also
has low resistance to heat flow, requires no power input and has
a linear calibration.
