Abstract : The Bibliography on Snow, Ice and Permaforst with Abstracts (CRREL Report 12) was initiated in 1952 and is a continuing project of the Science and Technology Division, Cold Regions Project Section of the LIBRARY OF Congress, prepared for the U.

The subjects covered vary from ablation to whiteout and include such diverse topics as avalanche forecasting, ice crystallography, snow mechanics, frost effects, tunneling and excavations, development of trafficable surfaces, permafrost const9uction, and various phases of heat and mass budgets.
