Daily positive heat flow into soil is an important component in the energy balance of a soil surface. If surface soil heat flux is assumed to vary diurnally as a sinusoidal function of time, with frequency, the daily positive soil heat flux density can be estimated. This method of estimation requires the measurement of surface soil temperature at about sunrise and at about mid-day to determine Delta To.-from Authors
