Abstract : The SIPRE Project is concerned with the compilation of an extensive bibliography on the subjects of snow, ice, permafrost (perennially frozen ground), seasonally frozen ground and arctic engineering problems. Search includes coverage of all existing technical information on these subjects published since 1930 with the inclusion of some earlier material in the case of a major treatise or where specific information is required. Priority of selection has been given to current material. Compilation of a working bibliography of articles for future abstracting is done on a continuing basis along with the current abstracting operation. Thus, search in any subject field or language is not exhaustive as of any given time but is completed progressively.
