This chapter examines direct physical causes of the hurricane protection system failures, including soil strength assessments and pumping station limitations....

Introduction
Permafrost is defined as soil that remains frozen for more than two years. At elevations less than 304.8 m (1000 ft.), it is frequently encountered north of latitude 60. It may also be...
