Group: Summary

   This data set presents centrifuge modeling of ground freeze and thaw 
   processes. Its primary relevance is to geotechnical/civil engineering, with 
   application to heave, thaw consolidation, and heave pressures. The data also 
   have potential application to modeling development of geological events such 
   as pingos. This data set is at risk of being lost.
