AbstractFrom the aspect of national economy, problems concerning organic terrain in Canada are now becoming very critical indeed. The development of the Northwest in particular is accompanied by heavy financial loss because the properties of muskeg are seriously inhibiting normal engineering progress. The frustration arising from this is intensified by the obvious fact that the rate of development of northern exploration is ever increasing, and it has surpassed the contribution that muskeg research has so far made. Theconcern shown by the oil and forestry industries and by agencies responsible for road construction is being brought to the attention of the Associate Committee on Soil and Snow Mechanics of the National Research Council. It is hoped that this trend will continue, for it effectively leads to formulation of pertinent programmes for muskeg research.
