Abstract: A geophysical control site consisting of 27 holes drilled in permafrost and cased with ABS pipe has been completed near the USACRREL permafrost tunnel at Fox, Alaska. The site provides excellent control on a range of material types in permafrost terrain including frozen silt, gravel, bedrock, and all common ground-ice types such as wedge, lens, and pore ice. The holes delineate massive ground-ice features of which there is no surface manifestation. Ground temperature data is available from a small-diameter glycol-filled hole. This report describes the site, its preparation, and the soil logs and data obtained.
