Record #117231:

Recent ground warming inferred from the temperature in permafrost near Mayo, Yukon Territory / Chris Burn.

Title: Recent ground warming inferred from the temperature in permafrost near Mayo, Yukon Territory / Chris Burn.
Author(s): Burn, Chris.
Date: 1992.
Publisher: Chichester: John Wiley & Sons
In: Periglacial geomorphology. Proceedings of the 22nd Annual Binghamton Symposium in Geomorphology. (1992.),
Abstract: Discontinuous permafrost zone. Ice-rich glaciolacustrine sediments near Mayo, where permafrost is 34 m thick, show evidence of recent warming. Geothermal modelling suggests that it has taken about 20 years for upper 15 m to reach present conditions, and that near-surface permafrost is about 1.5°C warmer than modelling suggests it may have been in early 1970s. Ground warming has occurred during period of rising air temperatures and increasing snowfall.
