Description :
A massive ground ice body at Cape Shpindler on Yugorski Peninsula, southern Kara Sea coast, Russia, was studied with regard to large-scale internal structures, its stratigraphic context and contacts to surrounding sediments, in order to highlight its origin. The results mean that the buried ice body has survived 2 interglacial periods (Eemian and Holocene), as well as several interstadials. This has consequences for the perception of the potential of relict permafrost to preserve long stratigraphical archives and signs of ancient glaciations.
