Dynamical Ginzburg-Landau theory is applied to the study of thermal effects of motion of interfaces that appear after different phase transitions. These effects stem from the existence of the surface internal energy, entropy and temperature gradients in the interfacial transition region. Evolution equations for the interfacial motion are derived. For the experimental verification of the thermal effects the expression is derived for the amplitude of temperature waves during continuous ordering.
