The concept of apparent thermal diffusivity in soil is discussed and defined as consisting of an intrinsic and a pseudo part. A method that uses a numerical model of heat conduction and measured soil temperatures to estimate apparent thermal diffusivity is introduced and applied to a five-day data set obtained in Sweden. The computational procedure for determining the apparent diffusivity is explained and results are then presented for different layers and periods
