Record #125984:

Geocryological-engineering properties of cryogenic weathering crusts in deposits in northern Yakutia / A.A. Vasil'yev.

Title: Geocryological-engineering properties of cryogenic weathering crusts in deposits in northern Yakutia / A.A. Vasil'yev.
Author(s): Vasil'yev, A. A.
Date: 1993.
In: Polar Geography and Geology. (1993.), Vol. 17(3) (1993)
Abstract: Compares cryogenic weathering layer, in terms of granulometric composition and cryogenic texture, in two contrasting environments. One site, at summit of Turku mountain, represents "low-dynamic" weathering environment in area of gentle relief, which is characterized by cryogenic breakdown of bedrock into deep layer of sandy loam. Other site, near Churpunn'ya mountain, represents more dynamic environment with profile consisting of coasrse material from which fines have been removed by solifluction. Variations in specific surface index provides useful index for assessing depth of bedrock affected by cryognic weathering.
