The main result of the study is identification of mesocyclites in the Alaska and Klondike yedomas, such as: a) there are three vertical growth mesocyclitic stages in the MacLeod Point yedoma; b) four vertical growth mesocyclitic stages are common in the Chatanika yedoma; c) at least four vertical growth mesocyclitic stages are identified in the Itkillik yedoma; d) at least four vertical growth mesocyclitic stages are revealed in the Fox permafrost yedoma; e) at least four vertical growth mesocyclitic stages are tiers are distinguished in the exposures Last Chance Creek; f) large two vertical growth mesocyclitic stages detect in the Seward Peninsula, in the Colville River and in the Northern Slope of Alaska yedomas; g) Klondike yedoma is characterized with large two-three vertical growth mesocyclitic stages.
