Engineering-Geocryological Investigations in the Baikal-Amur Mainline Area, Russia, Version 1

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.
