Description: Technical Report
Abstract: Project 1, Approach Roads, Greenland R & D Program, was organized in 1954 to develop methods, techniques arid criteria for constructing roads on both glacial ice surfaces and adjacent ice-free terrain. This report covers activities for the years 1960 through 1964, which consisted primarily of an annual assessment of the performance of the various roads and other structures on the ice cap. Emphasis is placed on climate; design, construction and performance of the new ramp road; performance of past construction; ice surface movement; subsurface temperature measurements; and the use of snow fences to reduce ablation.
