dc.descriptionSummary: This report was written to analyze the requirements for and recommend an orderly program for research in snow, ice and permafrost, including the use of existing facilities and the recommendation of any new facilities to accomplish the research. Military end points and corresponding problems are enumerated and the problems in turn reduced to fundamental operations, environmental factors, and properties. Twenty-seven research projects are listed with priority, and briefly described as to nature and scope. Among the appended information is a summary of the present status of knowledge of snow, ice and frozen ground. The report is particularly complete in an appraisal of snow and ice. Frozen ground is treated much less thoroughly.-
