AbstractMuskeg (or ?Organic Terrain?) comprises about 12 per cent of the terrain of Canada. It operates considerable difficulties for surface transportation and often interferes with engineering works. As a start in the solution of the problems caused by muskeg, it is desirable that everyone use the same terms to refer to this type of terrain. Standardization of terminology can best be furthered by an adequate classification or description of the terrain.
