ABSTRACT
Linear structures (pipelines, railways, roads) are highly developing at the permafrost zone of Russia. A lot of specific geohazards are there, including thermokarst. Risk assessment regarding as an impact probability for linear structures as a result of geological hazards is an urgent issue both from scientific and practical points of view.
