abstract For monitoring of permafrost temperature, this borehole was drilled on the strandflat at Kapp Linne. Drilled to 10m, but casing was not able to insert deeper than c. 4m. Stratigraphy: 0-1.2m:organic material, sand and ice 1.2-2m:sand and silt/clay. Beach sediment. Partly unfrozen 2-4m:layered sand with gravel and shells (20cm massive) 4-6m:fine sand with shells, drier. 6-8m: As above, wellgraded sand 8-10m: coarse gravel with sand
