Soil Temperature Near Vixen Geyser, Yellowstone National Park

At this site, soil temperature is monitored about 15 cm beneath the ground surface. This region of the Norris Back Basin increased markedly in temperature during the Norris Disturbance of 2003 and soil temperature at this site may be an effective indicator for basin-wide changes in groundwater flow and heat discharge.
