    CONTAINED IN VOL. 04.08, 2017 Specifies a procedure for the description of frozen soils based on visual examination and simple manual tests.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1 This practice presents a procedure for the description of frozen soils based on visual examination and simple manual tests.

    1.2 It is intended to be used in conjunction with Test Method D 2487 and Practice D 2488, which describe and classify soils, but do not cover their frozen state.

    1.3 This procedure is based on "Guide to Field Description of Permafrost for Engineering Purposes," National Research Council of Canada, 1963, and MIL-STD-619.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
