- ... The dual-probe heat-pulse (DPHP) method is useful for measuring soil thermal properties. Measurements are made with a sensor that has two parallel cylindrical probes: one for introducing a pulse of heat into the soil (heater probe) and one for measuring change in temperature (temperature probe). We present a semianalytical solution that accounts for the finite radius and finite heat capacity of th ...
