The influence of point-defect gradients on thermoelectric coefficient measurements in oxides is quantified. This permits corrections to be made for data collected by conventional means and suggests alternative techniques of thermopower measurements which maintain the average sample temperature while imposing thermal gradients. Experimental results on CoO, Fe//3O//4, and FeO in equilibrium with various atmospheres are considered.
