- ... Soil thermal conductivity (λ) and heat capacity (C) control heat transport and the thermal environment for biogeophysical processes in the vadose zone. Accurate λ and C predictions for peaty soils with high organic contents are particularly important for assessing emissions of greenhouse gases formed during microbial activity in wetlands. In this study, we measured the λ and C at different soil-wa ...
