Seasonally Frozen Soils Symposium

Dear Colleague,

The International Symposium on Physics, Chemistry and Ecology of
Seasonally Frozen Soils will be held June 10-12, 1997 at the
University of Alaska Fairbanks.  The symposium will provide a forum
for the exchange of information and ideas in the detection and
prediction of physical and biological processes in seasonally frozen
soils.  Topics of specific interest are those related to the
climatology, hydrology, physics, chemistry and biology of managed
ecosystems in cold regions. 

The deadline for early registration is April 30, 1997. Further
information or registration forms for the symposium can be obtained
