Development of a Differential Frost Heave Model: Application to Patterned Ground Formation.
Principal Investigator: Peterson, Rorik
Licenced Year(s): 1998
Summary: The objective of this work is to make physical measurements of the size, shape and distribution of earth hummocks in areas where the 1968 forest fire did not occur. We are developing a mathematical model which predicts hummock size and activity based on soil properties and environmental conditions. Because hummock activity appears to be very sensitive to environmental changes, our model, coupled ...
