Abstract:

This book will acquaint the reader with the special features of nature in the Subarctic, a huge region occupying 20 percent of the Soviet Unions territory, where nature is extremely vulnerable and easily destroyed. Normal temperature variations in the Subarctic that would be almost unnoticeable in southern zones and areas lead to changes in relief and intensify ground creep on slopes. This book contains a large amount of factual material -- the result of more than 20 years of research in the Far North on the part of the author. Author
