    I don't think we've covered this topic specifically....

    Anybody see any problems doing this? Could the erosion inhibiting characteristics be relied on when eventual thawing takes place?

    In other words, could a frozen hillside be somehow 'destablized' using this process? Unintentionally of course :)

    I would think the only problem would be getting the slocculants or other soil binders to hold to the frozen soil.

    For the record..... no i have not tried it myself.
    Be sure to let us know if it works!

    The only issues I would be concerned with is how much is gonna eventually take and the steepness of the slope? Sorry, I haven't tried it either.
