An estimate of ground heat flux for a seasonal snow cover
Keywords:Ground heat flux, Effective thermal conductivity, Temperature gradient, Snow cover, Snow melt
An estimation of ground heat flux for two locations has been done using temperature gradient method. Effective media approach has been adopted for predicting the effective thermal conductivity of ground. For comparison, in situ measurement of effective thermal conductivity of ground has also been done by thermal probe method. The measured values of thermal conductivity are in agreement with the calculated values. The estimated values of ground heat flux have been used to evaluate the melt rate at ground-snow interface.
