Abstract: During project activities at Camp Century in 1960 and again in 1962 an opportunity was afforded to obtain pictures of surface and subsurface features and conditions. Pictures taken in November 1960 can be compared to those taken in April 1962 from essentially the same location and a pictorial performance study of these locations can be made. The purpose of these comparative photographs is to present the information to CRREL personnel so that they are aware of the magnitude of the deformation problem. This is not meant to be a complete study, nor is comment given as to the reason for the observed changes. Many additional remarks could be made based on the observed deformations and performance of the trenches but these will not be discussed due to lack of comparative photographic coverage. The photographs shown here illustrate that dramatic changes have, occurred in 15 months, but the reasons for these changes, although evident in many locations, is left to other members of the organization who have studied the problem more thoroughly.
