One-dimensional heat conduction. If such surfaces are planes, then heat flow is said to be "linear" or one-dimensional, and is illustrated in Fig. 11. The variation of temperature across the element is shown in the figure, and the limit of the temperature drop per unit distance, ΘΤ/dz, is known as PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT OF AGRICULTURE 33 the temperature gradient. The equation relating rate of conduction of heat Q to temperature gradient is: (2 2) df " KAbf ' where k is the thermal conductivity of the material.

Observation shows that the velocity of flow relative to any solid surface tends to zero as the surface is approached, so that the air at the surface can be considered as adhering to it. The velocity profiles of Fig. 16 suggest that there is a tangential z * u * -uz)y ï>my^ 1 rr -5^ mvm, v/y///////> (b) FIG. 16a. Illustrating the velocity profile across a steady slow-speed airstream through a long pipe of circular cross-section. FIG. 16b. Illustrating the velocity profile with uniform steady air flow parallel to an extensive flat surface.

10) Eddy correlation instruments employing eqn. 10) have been very satisfactory for sensible heat flux measurement. However some instrumental limitations have yet to be overcome for accuracy in water vapour flux determinations in all situations. A general description of the instrumental arrangements required was given by Taylor and Dyer,<27> and Dyer (Joe. ) has given some examples of measurements obtained. PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT OF AGRICULTURE 55 EXCHANGE COEFFICIENT (OR TRANSPORT CONSTANT) HYPOTHESIS This hypothesis is that the mean vertical flux of servative quantity c is proportional to the gradient of value c of the quantity in the vertical direction.
