Summary
Abstract: For monitoring of permafrost temperature, this 10m deep borehole was drilled close to the Old Auroral Station in Adventdalen. Drilled in loess deposit. Stratigraphy: 0-1.2m: sand with some gravel 1.2-3m: sand/silt/clay 3-4m: clean ice (ice wedge or thick ice lens?) 4-6m: Mainly clay/silt 6-10m: clay/silt, possibly some sand. Layered.
