The temperature theory is when a ghost starts to manifest,
it can cause drops in temperature called cold spots or even cause a hot spot.
The hot spot rarely happens. If it is a cold spot the temperature should be
around a 10 degrees drop in temperature. The temperature gauges we use to
detect cold spots are:
|This meter is good for beginner
level investigators because it is very easy to use and read. However this meter
is not the best one for paranormal investigation. This meter will only detect
temperatures within one foot from the probe (the tip of the wire).
|Infrared(IR) Thermometers are very good to use in this field, as long as you have
selected a good
There are IR thermometers that take the temperature of a direct object
(the object it is being pointed at) like the one shown to the left. There
are also IR thermometers that take the actual air temperature and
give you the temperature of a radius area around it (such as the one shown
Some IR thermometers also have a laser pointer on
it to show you the direction you are pointing the thermometer.
Another theory regarding the paranormal and
temperature is that when a ghost wants to come in contact with you to give you a
sign they might generate wind. Our group uses the wind meter shown below.
This wind meter can tell you how fast the wind is blowing and in what direction it is coming from.
Dramatic changes in temperature may cause sudden gusts of wind.
Another theory with temperature is, when a ghost is
trying to manifest itself or wants to come in contact with you there might be a
change in pressure. Again, an extreme change in temperature may cause a change
in air pressure. Similarly, a sudden change in air pressure may precede a change
in temperature. The meter to detect pressure is called a barometer.
The final piece of temperature related equipment you could use is Thermal Imaging.
With thermal imaging you can see
the temperature differences around you. Thermal imaging cameras look like a video camera that attaches to a screen with a cable to view what you are
seeing. The hot colors include red, white, orange, and yellow. The cold colors are blue and green.
This is a great piece of equipment because if you
cold spot on a thermometer then you can view
and track the cold spot with a thermo imaging camera to see exactly what it is. Thermal imaging equipment is, however,
