Call for abstract submissions to "Engineering properties of permafrost" & “Permafrost Engineering: lessons from past and current projects” at SouthCOP 2019
Please consider submitting an abstract to the sessions on "Engineering properties of permafrost” & “Permafrost Engineering: lessons from past and current projects” at SouthCOP. The conference will be held in Queenstown, New Zealand, 4-14 of December. Conference information is available at https://southcop19.com/, and a list of sessions, abstract guidelines, and link to submit abstracts is available at https://southcop19.com/call-for-abstracts. Abstracts must be submitted by April 7 2019.
Sessions on "Engineering properties of permafrost” & “Permafrost Engineering: lessons from past and current projects”.
As increasing amounts of science are conducted on permafrost and in permafrost regions, so the demand for infrastructure and engineering-support in these regions also increases. Understanding the engineering properties of permafrost such as stiffness, strength and bearing capacity, and dealing with the temporal/spatial variation of these properties, is essential to best enable the use of permafrost for engineering purposes. On behalf of the SouthCOP convenors I invite you to submit abstracts related to assessment of the engineering properties of permafrost, their spatial and temporal evolution and examples of projects, past and current, involving permafrost engineering.
