BestPractices Probes can be arrayed in any manner desirable, but initial reconnaissance should be in a grid or in transects across and along faults, if known.  +
DataAcquisition The temperature at 1-2 m below the ground
The temperature at 1-2 m below the ground is measured by a thermocouple probe or a thermistor. There are different methods to create the hole in which the thermocouple probe or thermistor is inserted into to acquire the data. Some examples include using a hand soil auger or using a hammer drill. The best method is dependent on the soil type at the site and any time constraints.

EnvironmentalMitigation The use of off road vehicles should avoid overland travel during periods when soils are moist or wet. Backfilling of excavated probe holes.  +

NEPAanalysis This exploration technique may be approved
This exploration technique may be approved on federally managed lands by conducting a categorical exclusion (CX) analysis. Off road travel can be accomplished using existing roads and ways using ATV's and off road transportation. Access can be accomplished by using horses or by foot in areas closed to off road vehicles. An EA may be required in project areas that contain resources with a potential for impacts.

Pitfalls The potential problems with drilling the h
The potential problems with drilling the hole using a hand soil auger are that the temperature measurement could be influenced by shallow soil entering the hole, rocky soils are difficult to penetrate, and the holes may collapse if drilled in loose ground. The potential problems with using a thermistor instead of a thermocouple probe is that it is much more delicate and could be damaged during the creation of the 2m hole.
