Freezing of soil practically, if not completely, closes it to the infiltration of water and thus results in increased surface run-off. Any agency which tends to prevent soil freezing tends to keep the soil permeable during all or a greater portion of the year and thus decreases the frequency of high rates of surface run-off and consequent floods. The following article describes a study of soil freezing in which were compared the depths of freeze under different types of vegetation and also with different conditions of slope aspect.
