Contaminants in Freezing Ground and Permafrost Terrain Resource Library

By Thomas L. White

The timely release of the twelve-volume book set and CD-ROM containing Dr. White’s Contaminated Arctic Soils Database provides engineers and geoscientists working in universities, research institutes, corporations, government and regulatory bodies with the tools necessary to carry out an in-depth examination of the behaviour of contaminants in freezing soils and permafrost-affected soils.

The Environmental Resource Library details the fundamental behaviour and modification of physical, chemical and hydrological properties of freezing soils and permafrost-affected soils (Cryosols) by a wide range of organic and inorganic contaminants. The resource library provides the user with additional insights into

  • the thermodynamic properties of Arctic and Antarctic cold climate soils
  • contaminants at airports, oil and gasfacilities, mining sites, military sites, landfillsand impoundments in cold climates
  • the nature of contaminant hydrology with case studies for assessment
  • strategies for contaminated site management
  • technologies and remediation procedures

Pipelines in Permafrost and Freezing Ground

By Thomas L. White

The timely release of the fourteen-volume book set provides engineers and geoscientists working in research institutes, corporations, governments and regulatory bodies with an in-depth examination of the interdependence between cold climate and infrastructure and the behaviour of freezing soils and permafrost-affected soils

The Engineering Resource Library provides the user with additional insights into intricate concepts such as

  • Soil strain and soil creep
  • Hydrological and micro-morphological properties
  • Frost heave and frost bulb growth
  • Thaw consolidation and pipeline relaxation
  • Pressure in freezing soils
  • Bending stresses in buried pipelines
  • Uplift resistance of pipelines in permafrost

The Library may be equipped with a suite of program modules and databases.
