Record #139037:

Seasonal and annual dynamics of frozen ground in the central highland of Iceland / T.E. Thórhallsdóttir.

Title: Seasonal and annual dynamics of frozen ground in the central highland of Iceland / T.E. Thórhallsdóttir.
Author(s): Thórhallsdóttir, T. E.
Date: 1996.
In: Arctic and Alpine Research. (1996.), Vol. 28(2) (1996)
Abstract: 9-year study was carried out on Thórsárver. There were large annual fluctuations in proportion frozen. Wet soil froze deeper. Active layer depth showed little annual variation, so much melting must be from below. Results support notion that permafrost is marginal in Iceland.
Notes:
