AbstractThis translation is the eighth arranged by the Permafrost Subcommittee of the Associate Committee on Soil and Snow Mechanics of the National Research Council of the Russian permafrost publication, "Principles of Geocryology". This translation of Chapter V by N.A. Tsytovich and several of his colleagues deals with physical phenomena and processes in freezing, frozen and thawing soils. It includes discussion of the principle components of frozen soils, the classification of moisture in frozen soils, ice content and liquid phase, equilibrium of water and ice, thermal and physical chemical characteristics, mechanical processes, and the alteration of frozen soils during freezing and thawing.
