Note: This page has interactive demonstrations activated with Wolfram CDF player - a free viewing software tool for CDF files. To take full advantage of the educational content below, download the Wolfram CDF player.

The demonstration below is a simple model of how soil temperature at different depths depends on periodic heating on the surface. The initial condition sets the temperature at all depths equal to a constant core temperature. Increase the number of periods and look at different depths. The left plot shows the entire range of depth while the right plot gives temperatures at particular depths.
