Course Synopsis:

Did you know?  The arctic is the northern region in which the mean temperature for the warmest month is less than 50 degrees Fahrenheit (F) and the mean annual temperature is below 32 degrees F. In general, the arctic coincides with the tundra region north of the limit of trees.

This course discusses the design of surface drainage in the subarctic and arctic regions. The arctic is the northern region in which the mean temperature for the warmest month is less than 50 degrees Fahrenheit and the mean annual temperature is below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. The subarctic is the region adjacent to the arctic in which the mean temperature for the coldest month is below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, the mean temperature for the warmest month is above 50 degrees Fahrenheit, and in which there are fewer than 4 months with a mean temperature above 50 degrees Fahrenheit.

Course Objectives:

This course teaches the following specific engineering knowledge and skills regarding Guidelines for Design in the Arctic and Subarctic:

  • Introduction on the design of drainage structures in the arctic and subarctic

  • Summary of methods on counteracting, avoidance, and control of icing
