Measurement and control of the high T variable is necessary in high P synthesis and in situ experiments. We introduce concepts of heat and temperature and how to apply and measure them in high P environments using piston-cylinder and multi-anvil environments as examples. These are readily adapted to other types of high-pressure apparatus. We also describe the operation of the laser-heated diamond anvil cell.
