The U.S. Permafrost Association (USPA) announces their next USPA Technical Training webinar, titled Impact of Water on Permafrost and Design of Drainage Systems for Transportation Infrastructure in Permafrost Regions. This webinar will take place 10 June 2024, 9:00-10:00 a.m. AKDT.

This webinar will present new strategies and engineering drainage design tools aimed at limiting erosion and mitigating permafrost degradation caused by water flow along and underneath transportation infrastructure. The drainage strategies and tools developed were validated using observations and data from previous studies conducted at the Beaver Creek Road test site in the Yukon, Canada, and applied to conditions at three other test sites in the Arctic: in Ilulissat in Greenland, along the Alaska Highway near the Alaska-Yukon Border, and the Salluit airport access road in Nunavik, Canada.

A Certificate of Professional Development Hours (PDH) will be provided to participants who request it after the webinar. The webinar is free for USPA members and all students. For non-USPA members who are not students, the registration fee is $20 (USD).

The seminar will be recorded and uploaded on the USPA website.
