Abstract:

The thermal conductivity of four organic sediments was measured using transient heating. It was found that a gelatinous constituent reduces conductivity to below that of water. The magnitude of the reduction diminishes with increasing heat flow. A fibrous constituent apparently increases conductivity, and shows no variation with heat input. Author
