TeLeWatt - temperature above pipes and cables in tidal flat sediments

FTZ carried out several projects to investigate the variability of temperature in tidal flat sediments above pipelines and cables. Besides the long term measurement of soil temperature in a depth of 30 cm this also involves the registration and evaluation of possible effects of soil heating on sediments and living environment. Beyond the field studies also model approaches have been developed to forecast changes of soil temperature under varying entry criteria.
