Group: Summary

   This study investigated periglacial processes in the area around Magadan City, 
   Russia. Polygons containing observation sites were established in both natural 
   and disturbed conditions. Permafrost temperature, thickness, and water content 
   were measured in boreholes up to 160 m deep. Active-layer depth and soil 
   properties were also measured. Data were collected during 1933, 1939-54, 
   1957-58, 1968-86, and 1989.
