Group: Summary

   This project collected information on snow cover, geocryology, soil 
   properties, and ground temperature, in western Siberia, Russia. Ground 
   temperature was measured every 0.5 m to a depth of 3 m; every 1.0 m to a depth 
   of 10 m; and every 2 to 5 m below 10 m. Data were collected during 1967-69, 
   1974, 1979-80, and 1986-2002. The data are presents as 
   engineering-geocryological maps (scale 1:500 to 1:2000), sections, and tables. 
   Data are stored at the National Geocryological Fund, Moscow, under the 
   following Archive Numbers: 3957; 13957; 14329; 16640; 16036; 10201; 9499(6689 
   a,b); 11856; 16718; 16718a; 17000; 17768; 17002; 17580; 13092(10967); 15834;
