Record #119472:

Permafrost environment of the Daisetsu mountains, Hokkaido, Japan / Toshio Sone.

Title: Permafrost environment of the Daisetsu mountains, Hokkaido, Japan / Toshio Sone.
Author(s): Sone, Toshio.
Date: 1992.
In: Permafrost and Periglacial Processes. (1992.), Vol. 3(3) (1992)
Abstract: Discusses distribution of permafrost in these mountains on basis of freezing and thawing indices and pattern of winter snow distribution. Mean annual air temperature at 2000 m a.s.l. is estimated at --3.6°C. Alpine permafrost is mainly in windward bare ground, which extends to summit areas where snow is removed by wind. Lower limit of permafrost is 1650 m a.s.l. Some periglacial processes, such as palsa formation and frost cracking, are explained by present climate of mountains.
