Abstract

The AA. interpret the outcomes of scaled geotechnical centrifuge simulation of ice-wedge casting in terms of the likely significance of Quaternary ice-wedge pseudomorphs observed within different host sediments. In the 6 experiments reported, permafrost thawing took place continuously from the surface downwards in a single stage, so that the observed wedge casting processes almost certainly represent a major simplification of the natural system
