The Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory NCEL investigated problems concerning subsurface temperatures, snow accumulation, and potential frost heaving beneath buildings at McMurdo Station, Antarctica. Two buildings were selected for a comparative study of their effects upon earth-fill foundation and underlying permafrost. One building has an open below space beneath it for air circulation and the other is completely enclosed. Author
