A method used to measure and validate the temperature field in an experimental downdraft biomass gasifier and reformulate the discrete test data into continuous mathematical functions is described. The reformulated temperature field is analyzed to identify different reaction zones within the gasifier. Distinct endothermic and exothermic regions, separated by rather complicated boundaries, are found.
