Heat Transfer in Frozen Soil
Between the Arctic Ocean and the Brooks Range of Alaska lies the North Slope. In this cold and barren tundra oil has been found and considerable oil exploration and production activity is anticipated for the coming years. A good part of this activity will require the erection of engineering structures such as drill rigs, pipelines, work camps, and, of course, roads and airfields.
