AbstractAlmost one hall of Canada's total land surface is underlain by permafrost and its existence has many implications to both scientific and engineering interests. Engineering experience has indicated that site investigations are essential in permafrost areas but no standard method for reporting permafrost conditions has been used or is available. This booklet has been prepared with the hope that the descriptive system outlined will fulfil this need.
