Abstract

The AA. measure and explain the seasonal changes in soil ice content in the frost boils of Galbraith Lake, Alaska. They use the changes in soil volume, temperature and thermal properties during freezing and thawing to draw conclusions about changes in ice volume. Their objectives are to describe the heave dynamics of a frost boil, to quantify the role of seasonal ice growth in these features, and to evaluate the role of ice formation and segregation in differential frost heave at this site
