Abstract : For the purpose of obtaining the actual settling at a more complete description of individual facets in the deformations of frozen ground during thawing and also a comparison of these data with the settling values based on individual mathematical formulas of the thawing of large tracts of frozen ground in two experimental plots were conducted. Settling during thawing was determined by leveling relative to the reference point of a ground surface at individual points. Simultaneously with the leveling, at each plot a feeler gage was used to measure the thawing depth of soils. (Author)
