Record #125751:

Microclimatic characteristics of palsas along an altitudinal gradient, Mackenzie Mountains, NWT, Canada / G. Peter Kershaw, Kevin D. Skaret.

Title: Microclimatic characteristics of palsas along an altitudinal gradient, Mackenzie Mountains, NWT, Canada / G. Peter Kershaw, Kevin D. Skaret.
Author(s): Kershaw, G. Peter.
Skaret, Kevin D.
Date: 1993.
Publisher: Wushan, Guangzhou: South China University of Technology Press
In: Permafrost. Sixth International Conference. Proceedings (Vol. 1), July 5-9, 1993, Beijing China. (1993.),
Abstract: Aim was to quantify selected microclimatic attributes on year-round basis and to attempt to explain expected differences in these characteristics dictated by site conditions and variations in elevation. Influence of elevation was mostly effected through cold-air drainage in winter; consequently, higher sites were warmer. Other factors, such as insulative properties of snowpack and internal boundary layer associated with plant communities, appear to influence microclimate characteristics where they vary on site-specific basis over individual palsa surfaces.
