Summary
Abstract: For monitoring of permafrost temperature, this 19.7m deep borehole was drilled in Endalen. Stratigraphy: 0-1.5m: Diamicton. High fraction of fine material and scattered blocks. 1.5-2m: Coarser material. Ice lenses (10-20cm). 2-4m: Diamicton with blocks and finer material (silt/clay). Some ice lenses (3-4cm thick) 4-5m: Diamicton. Drier than above from 4.5m. 5-6m: Transition to bedrock. Crushed zone 6-20m: Bedrock. Solid from 7.7m.
