Experimental results are given of studies into intense heat pulsations with a spectral density inversely proportional to frequency during transition to the local crisis of nitrogen boiling on the surface of current-carrying films of high-temperature superconductors. A theoretical model is suggested of the rise of fluctuations with 1/f spectrum during interaction of intersecting phase transitions in concentrated systems.
