Problems of permafrost engineering as related to global climate warming

  • Lev N. Khrustalev
Part of the NATO Science Series book series (ASEN2, volume 76)


The paper discusses the influence of global climate warming on the stability of engineering constructions in the permafrost zone. Conditions are formulated under which global warming should be taken into consideration in engineering practices, and ways to do it are described.
