Record #152809:

Heat transfer processes at the lower limit of Alpine permafrost, Marmot Basin, Jasper National Park, Canada / Stuart A. Harris.

Title: Heat transfer processes at the lower limit of Alpine permafrost, Marmot Basin, Jasper National Park, Canada / Stuart A. Harris.
Author(s): Harris, Stuart A.
Date: 1999.
In: Biuletyn Peryglacjalny. (1999.), Vol. 38 (1999)
Abstract: Gives details obtained from 16.8 m hole drilled into clast-supported boulders of fossil Pre-Late Wisconsin rock glacier at Marmot Basin, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. Temperatures and depth of snow pack were also recorded. Ground temperatures relate to snow cover rather than air temperatures. Water table lies about 12 m deep. Permafrost up to 6.8 m thick was present. At surface, heat conduction predominates, being replaced by closed-cell convection between blocks. Warmer snow melt in early summer can penetrate permafrost layer.
