Record #117674:

Permafrost occurrence from BTS measurements and climatic parameters in the eastern Swiss Alps / Martin Hoelzle.

Title: Permafrost occurrence from BTS measurements and climatic parameters in the eastern Swiss Alps / Martin Hoelzle.
Author(s): Hoelzle, Martin.
Date: 1992.
In: Permafrost and Periglacial Processes. (1992.), Vol. 3(2) (1992)
Abstract: Relations between climatic parameters such as temperature and potential direct solar radiation (PR) and measured bottom temperatures of snow cover (BTS) as indicator of permafrost occurrence were investigated. No significant correlation exists between mean annual air temperature (MAAT) and BTS. High correlation between PR and BTS may help to develop model for predicting permafrost distribution in mountain areas. This correlation and low one between MAAT and BTS help to explain existence of low-altitude permafrost in alpine regions.
