Entry ID

GGD305

Summary

This data set includes geocryological data from boreholes in the Messoyakha-Norilsk Pipeline Area, Russia. Parameters include ground temperature and soil properties. Ground temperature was measured every 0.5 m to a depth of 3m, and every 1.0 m below 3 m. Data were collected during 1968-69, 1972-84, 1and 986-88. Results are presented as tabular data and as geocryological maps (scales 1:500 - 1:2000) and engineering-geolocryological sections (scales 1:100 - 1:2000). Data are stored at the National Geocryological Fund, Moscow, under the following Archive Numbers - 15500; 15116; 16780(27-38; 7028(2), 10196; 16587; 13097; 14747; 14107/104; 7028(1), 10196(1), 10196(III), 10196(II); 11623; 13920; 11591; 11611, 11896; 9182; 11171; 12945; 12824; and 12223. This data set is at risk of being lost.
