Abstract:

A logical system of symbols to designate the widely accepted biological variables routinely measured in environmental research is described. Upper case letters are used for three major symbols of temperature, heat quantity, and rate of heat transfer. These are modified by upper case subscripts for physical variables and lower case subscripts for biological variables.
