The properties of the ground governing the flow of heat through it, and its freezing and thawing conditions  IPAPermafrost 

The properties of the ground governing the flow of heat through it, and its freezing and thawing conditions. The position of the interface between thawed and frozen soil with respect to the ground surface, for a given surface-temperature regime, depends on the thermal properties of the strata located above and immediately below the interface. The basic Thermal Properties of Frozen Ground are Thermal Conductivity, Heat capacity and Latent Heat of Fusion.  TrombottoGeocryology
