Abstract: An off-road vehicle test utilizing a smooth-tired Rolligon weighing approximately 25,000 lb. was conducted at Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, on 25 June 1976. Vehicle impact on the vegetation and terrain was documented at 32 stations selected as representative of the coastal tundra terrain. Twenty-seven stations were of single-pass track .and five were multiple-pass lanes of up to 30 passes. The report documents the impacts with photographs and numerical ratings. Future observations Will enable determination of rates of recovery. NOTE: This file is very large. Allow your browser several minutes to download the file.
