Use Of Thermal Measurements With Different Spatial Resolutions To Monitor The Internal Structure Of Stratified Water Bodies

In the last decade, fiber-optic distributed temperature sensing (DTS) methods have gained ground among researches and have been used to measure the thermal profile of natural water bodies. DTS technology enables the use of a fiber-optic cable for both data transmission and temperature sensing at large extensions, offering an alternative for continuous measurements at a
