AbstractThe Associate Committee on Soil and Snow Mechanics is one of about thirty special committees which assist the National Research Council in its work. Formed in 1945 to deal with an urgent wartime problem involving soil and snow, the Committee is now performing its intended task of co-ordinating Canadian research studies concerned with the physical and mechanical properties of the terrain of the Dominion. It does this through subcommittees on Snow and Ice, Soil Mechanics, Muskeg, and Permafrost. The Committee, which consists of about fifteen Canadians appointed as individuals and not as representatives, each for a 3-year term, has funds available to it for making research grants for work in its fields of interest. Inquiries will be welcomed and should be addressed to: The Secretary, Associate Committee on Soil and Snow Mechanics, c/o The Division of Building Research, National Research Council, Ottawa, Canada.
