AbstractThis translation is the second 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 IV by P.F. Shvetsov reviews the various ideas of the origin and nature of permafrost which have been developed since the nineteenth century. Following this review, the current concept of permafrost as a condition arising from a negative heat balance in the ground is discussed.
