Description: The use of Granier-style heat dissipation sensors to measure sap flow is common in plant physiology, ecology, and hydrology. There has been concern that any change to the original Granier design invalidates the empirical relationship between sap flux density and the temperature difference between the probes. We compared daily water use estimates from gravimetric measurements with values from variable-length heat dissipation sensors, which are a relatively new design. In general, the comparison showed the minor changes to the original Granier-type sensors does not affect the empirical relationship used to determine sap flux density.
