Record #135422:

Thermal environments of Arctic soil organisms during winter / S.J. Coulson, and six others.

Title: Thermal environments of Arctic soil organisms during winter / S.J. Coulson, and six others.
Author(s): Coulson, S. J.
Date: 1995.
In: Arctic and Alpine Research. (1995.), Vol. 27(4) (1995)
Abstract: Soil temperature at five High Arctic sites and one sub-Arctic site was compared in 1992/93 and 1993/94. At High Arctic sites sonw cover afforded slight insulation where minimum air temperatures were as low as -32°C. However, snow did not accumulate significantly until late winter, by which time ground had cooled to about -20°C. Polar night aided cooling. Temperatures at 3 and 10 cm were recorded. Soil organisms may be inactive up to 289 days per year.
