Problems of permafrost engineering as examplified by three communities in the north western Canadian Arctic / Peter Worsley.

Title: Problems of permafrost engineering as examplified by three communities in the north western Canadian Arctic / Peter Worsley.
Author(s): Worsley, Peter.
Date: 1992.
In: Quaternary Proceedings. (1992.), (2) (1992)
Abstract: Considers three case studies in continuous permafrost zone of Northwest Territories: village of Sachs Harbour on Banks Island; Tuktoyaktuk on south coast of Beaufort Sea; and Inuvik on eastern Mackenzie delta. Most constructional problems associated with permafrost have been successfully overcome.
