The Temperature of Tree Trunks-Calculated and Observed

Abstract

A computer program based on Dusinberre's finite difference method was written to predict the diurnal temperature variations in a tree trunk. The program accounts for solar radiation, thermal radiation, re-radiation and forced convection. The trunk is heterogeneous and anisotropic. A comparison between observations and predictions is made.
