Abstract : The report summarizes observations that were made during a field trip to Alaska in the spring of 1949. Principal objectives of this phase of the Arctic and Subarctic Airfield Drainage Investigation were (1) to make supplemental on-the-ground observations over a wide range of hydrological phenomena, (2) to note the various forms and effects of icing, (3) to observe springtime runoff from natural watersheds, and (4) to crystallize the findings of activity completed at this time into definite recommendations and point out various aspects where continuation and even expansion of research and study are essential.
