  •  Regarding the issue of high temp in the sand... (2+ / 0-)

    BASF makes a product (Micronal DS 5001) that could be added to the sand around a nest at risk for exceeding the 30C lower threshold, that would greatly increase the thermal inertia at 26 C and significantly delay the rise in temperature.

    They probably could be convinced that this would be an interesting and valuable application of their product (which otherwise is used in the building industry to reduce energy use there).
