ESTIMATION OF THE DEPTH OF SOIL FREEZING IN DRAINAGE BASINS IN THE CENTRAL PART OF THE NORTHWESTERN EUROPEAN USSR

To obtain the average freezing depth in a basin with sufficient accuracy one must have observations in various kinds of soils, types of land uses, and at various elevations, including areas near water divides and the flood plains of ravines. In the absence of obserbations under all plains of ravines. In the absence of observations under all smaller number of cryopedometes and install them in representative areas. Such areas in the field are the middle parts of slopes, flat meadow areas, and areas with soils most common to the given basin, and in the forest, areas with deciduous and mixed stands. Analysis of the effect of various factors on freezing depth showed that it is possible to use the information on soil freezing depth obtained by the hydrometeorological station network for converting it to basins or their individual parts with different soils, land uses, and relief features. /Author/
