Ground temperatures in Britain

D. J. Harris

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Knowledge of ground temperatures is useful for those considering the use of earth-sheltered buildings or ground-source heat pumps, and enables more accurate predictions of performance to be obtained. Ground temperature data has been collected for many different purposes, including civil engineering, electrical cable laying, agricultural and other reasons, but because of the varying requirements of the different disciplines, there has been little consistency in the collection of such data. Here, a selection of data is presented to illustrate the ground temperature patterns in Great Britain. Temperatures calculated using a method due to Labs are presented, and give results close to those measured. © Ambient press Limited 2006.
