A portable test kit has been developed in which is included hand-operated equipment for penetrating ice to a depth of 15 feet or more and for obtaining ice specimens, together with equipment for measuring ice thickness, density, salinity, temperature and compressive strength. With construction of necessary adapters, additional tests may be performed, such as tension, shear, and flexure strength tests. A specially-designed auger included in the kit is of particular interest providing hitherto unavailable equipment for drilling and coring ice. Author
