Group: Summary

   This data set includes geocryological data from northwest Russia. Parameters 
   include soil properties, ground temperature, ground water properties, and 
   geophysical properties. Data were collected during 1967, 1970, 1972, 1976-77, 
   and 1987-88. Results are presented in tables and schematic maps (scale 1:1000 
   to 1:2000). Data are stored at the National Geocryological Fund, Moscow, under 
   the following Archive Numbers: 11366 (8354); 11298 (8147); 11297 (8145, 8329); 
   16913; 11311, 6732, 10776, 11085, 16374; 10608; 12231; 11285; 11437(8421);
