Abstract : The principal problem of the general theoretical and historical geocryology was and remains the problem of studies of the general laws governing the formation and development of frozen layers. In them we must uncover both the thermophysical and geologic-geographical sides of development of the freezing process in their interaction and interrelationship. The logical completion of theoretical studies should be the creation of classification of seasonally frozen layers and those frozen over many years, in which the thermophysical features and thermodynamic conditions of formation and development of the frozen layers should be taken into account.
