Frozen Ground Affect Depth?
Quote this message in a reply
This might be an odd question, though, I was just wondering this today...

We all know metal detector depth is compromised when the ground is drier, well, what about if the ground is frozen. Will this too affect depth? I'm leaning towards no, however, since the moisture is frozen, it isn't circulating, ie; isn't reaching all areas. Hence, "drier" ground, in a sense.

Plausible?

Frozen ground cools off electricity and it stops moving--all the power in space where it's very cold has already fallen to Earth that's why the astronauts have to take theirs with them and keep it warm--

Sure, they work just fine on frozen ground, but the digging will kill you .

Trust me, been there, done that. At least I tried.

You may want to try in a heavily wooded area that has some decent ground cover, like old fallen leaves, you will find there is less ground frost to be found in these areas at times.
