Abstract: This proceedings, Cold Regions Engineering: Putting Research into Practice, is a compilation of the technical papers presented at the Tenth International Conference on Cold Regions Engineering held in Lincoln, New Hampshire, on August 16-19, 1999. Nine topic areas discuss the application of cold regions research in over 80 papers. The South Pole Redevelopment Project section discusses the design and construction involved in the modernization and upgrade of facilities at the U.S. Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. Design and construction problems in frozen ground and permafrost are addressed in the Frozen Ground Engineering section. The Environmental Engineering in Cold Regions section addresses water and wastewater systems, bioremediation, and contaminant analysis in cold regions. The use of satellite and airborne imagery for detection of oil spills and environmental degradation are discussed in the Remote Sensing Applications in Cold Regions section. The Cold Regions Transportation Issues section covers the solutions to problems affecting pavements, railroads, airfields, and snow-covered roads. The River Ice Hydrology, and Hydraulics section addresses snowmelt, runoff, ice control, and modeling of ice-covered rivers. Structural and foundation problems are addressed in the Construction in Cold Regions section. The Atmospheric Icing section covers tree and power line damage due to freezing rain and ice storms. Finally, the Snow and Ice Engineering section looks at sea ice forces on structures and the effects of ice on riprap. The papers presented in this proceedings should provide a state-of-the-art look at cold regions engineering research and its application to real-world problems.
