AbstractTwo Russian articles dealing with dam construction in northern areas of the U.S.S.R. are included in this publication. The first describes the design and construction of a water storage dam built on permafrost at Mirnyi, in northwest Yakutia. The foundation and core of the dam are maintained in a frozen condition by a duct system through which cold winter air is circulated. The second article describes the construction schedule and placing of materials under severe conditions for a large rock-fill dam associated with a hydro project at Chernishevskii on the Vilyui River in Siberia.
