Abstract

This paper describes the methodology employed to resolve vertical changes associated with frost heave and thaw settlement in northern Alaska, at Prudhoe Bay, using differential global positioning systems (DGPS) technology. Traditional profile leveling techniques confirmed these measurements. DGPS is a promising tool for measurement of periglacial phenomena, and is applicable over a wide range of spatial scale
