T he process of geologic mapping, either on the surface or underground, creates new geologic data and knowledge that contribute to earth information science, from which insights can be drawn now and in the future. However, exposed mineral deposits are becoming more scarce than ever.

Many future targets will likely be buried under postmineral rocks, or occur at significant. Water temperature influences most physical and biological processes in streams, and along with streamflows is a major driver of ecosystem processes.

Collecting data to measure water temperature is therefore imperative, and relatively straightforward. Several protocols exist for collecting stream temperature data, but these are frequently directed towards : Michael P.
