Record #154419:

Impact of rapid mass movement and drifting snow on the infrastructure and development of Longyearbyen, Svalbard / Erik Hestnes.

Title: Impact of rapid mass movement and drifting snow on the infrastructure and development of Longyearbyen, Svalbard / Erik Hestnes.
Author(s): Hestnes, Erik.
Date: 2000.
Publisher: Norway :
In: Proceedings [of the] International Workshop on Permafrost Engineering, Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway, 18-21 June 2000. (2000.),
Abstract: Evaluates risks and safety measures for construction of housing and roads in Longyearbyen, Svalbard, and aims to reduce problems caused by drifting snow. Lack of meteorological data together with knowledge of processes influencing mass stability in permafrost areas, limits recommendations. More information needed on local wind directions and speed, which influence drifting snow.
