Miller, "Lens initiation in secondary frost heaving," in Proceedings of International Symposium on Frost Action
in Soils, Lulea, Sweden, February 1977.
The stone bearing the inscription continued to deteriorate and through frost action
exfoliated and was lost.
He recognized the unique influences that permafrost and seasonal frost action
exert on soil properties, which include the burial of surface organic matter into the uppermost permafrost.
By turning over the soil, buried bugs in cocoon, larva case, or in their egg stage are exposed to being fed upon by birds and mice, as well as frost action
. Leave the soil surface unraked to catch late fall rains, allow for beneficial frost action
, and loosened soil will dry out and warm faster next spring.
Under natural processes, both species exploit gaps in the vegetation produced by small-scale disturbances, such as frost action
and wind erosion, to survive (Hermanutz et al.
Each spring, new ones would appear as a result of frost action
. Most fields were small, so that stones didn't have to be carried far.
Each anchoring method requires that the posts of the amenity resist frost action
. Certain amenities may require that conduit for supplying electrical wiring or reinforcing be placed when frost footings are poured.
This lower stonework will again be vulnerable to frost action
, as well as being stained by the dirty water run-off.
Weathering phenomena may be physical; through frost action
or thermal expansion, chemical; through dissolution, hydrolysis, oxidation, or biological; through acid secretions from lichen growth.
had caused the concrete floors in the plant's ice-storage rooms to heave upward, and they needed to be repaired.
Wood's buffering ability, along with it's natural resiliency, resists the frost action
that can eventually shatter harder materials like concrete and stone.
