Review article about sediment temperatures and 2K-criterion available online

A team of scientists from FIELAX has submitted a manuscript about the variability of sediment temperatures and the so-called 2K-criterion to the Elsevier journal ‘Applied Thermal Engineering’. The manuscript: /Temperatures in shallow marine sediments: Influence of thermal properties, seasonal forcing, and man-made heat sources/ was accepted today and is available under the following link:

Highlights of this article are:

  • Sediment thermal properties are highly variable.
  • Seasonal forcing causes large spatial and temporal sediment temperature variations.
  • Power cable temperatures strongly depend on thermal properties of a given site.
  • The 2K-criterion is not suitable to detect man-made heat injection.
