   This data set includes geocryological data from boreholes in the Baikal-Amur 
   mainline area of Russia. Parameters include soil properties, ground 
   temperature, ground water properties, geophysical properties, and active layer 
   depth. Data were collected during 1964-65, 1969, 1971-72, 1974-78, 1980-84, 
   and 1987-88. The data set includes engineering-geocryological maps (1:500 to 
   1:2000) and geocryological sections. Data are stored at the National 
   Geocryological Fund, Moscow, under the following Archive Numbers: 
   12958(10733); 12652; 12249; 12651; 8717; 11168(8080); 11115; 15087; 16753;
