Definition: A distinct soil micromorphology, resulting from the effects of freezing and thawing processes, in which soil particles form discrete units that are coalescing.  NSIDCCryosphere 

A distinct soil micromorphology, resulting from the effects of freezing and thawing processes, in which soil particles form discrete units that are coalescing  IPAPermafrost 

It is a micromorphological soil structure, which is the result of Freeze-Thaw Processes, and in which the units are either coalescent or with bridges, and the voids are planar. Such structures can be found in the Andes, associated with patterned ground.  TrombottoGeocryology
