Based on a previously developed laboratory method for the nondestructive determination of thermal inertia, a thermal inertia meter (TIM) has been developed and employed to measure the thermal inertia of geologic materials in situ. We have used the TIM to discriminate different rock and soil types at a number of test sites in Nevada and California. -from Authors
