Abstract

We present an annual model of the temperature structure within a homogeneous, dry soil halfspace that is subject to both diurnal and annual insolation, radiant heating from the atmosphere, sensible heat exchange with the atmosphere, and radiant cooling. The thermal constitutive properties of the soil are assumed to be constant so that the heat flow equation could be solved analytically. For computational economy, we develop a variable time interval Laplace transform method to predict the temperature.
