Paper Abstract

To examine soil surface temperature evolution, a soil heat and water transfer model (HYDRUS-1d) is coupled to an atmospheric surface layer scheme. Idealized simulations are carried out for different meteorological conditions (wind speed and temperature). From the simulation results, the coupling between soil properties, surface temperature, and sensible heat flux is examined and implications for landmine thermal signatures are derived.
