Group: Summary

   This study used ground-penetrating radar to map groundwater (sub- and 
   supra-permafrost) and bedrock and permafrost constraints to water flow at Fort 
   Wainright, Alaska. Active layer parameters, depth of perennial thaw, and 
   permafrost dialectic permittivity were measured.
