Abstract

"The distribution of permafrost as well as the effects of permafrost profile, exposure, snow cover, vegetation, soil absorption, and degree of slope on erosion phenomena on the sandy slopes at Skansen [Disko; 69 degrees N. 52 degrees W.] in 1949 and Thule [76 degrees 34' N. 68 degrees 48' W.] in 1950-51 are discussed. Effects of permafrost on riverbank erosion are also described and the segregation of gravel into layers by particle size is explained as due to differential creeping."--SIPRE.
