Group: Summary

   This data set includes geocryological data from boreholes in the in the 
   Yamburg and Medvezhje gas fields of western Siberia, Russia. Parameters 
   include ground temperature, active layer depth, ground ice, and soil 
   properties, and the data set includes computer modelling. Ground temperature 
   was measured every 1.0 m to adepth of 15 m.  Data were collected during 
   1972-74, 1976, 1984-87, and 1994-2000. Results are presented in tabular form 
   and as engineering-geocryological maps and profiles (scale 1:500 to 1:1000). 
   Data are stored at the National Geocryological Fund, Moscow, under the 
   following Archive Numbers - 16584; 16584, 16664; 15992; 13957; 15727; 15558; 
   15557; 15805, 15805a; 15745; 12267, 11534, 11601; 11535, 11563; 11536, 12646;
