Subgroup on Engineering Geology for Development in Permafrost Regions


  • Dmitry Sergueev

Statement of Goals:

  • Develop new methodologies for risk assessment and geohazard evaluation of permafrost degradation in the context of climate warming integrating a probabilistic analysis in risk assessment and mapping of permafrost instability (with IAEG Commission 21)
  • Recommend legends to reflect the permafrost condition parameters at different map scales
  • Prepare illustrated examples of successful examples for the use of permafrost research in engineering geology practice


International Symposium: Geological Engineering Problems in Major Construction Projects in Combination with the 7th Asian Regional Conference of IAEG (2009, China), CGS conferences, prepare review report on methodologies
