Palsas in Härjedalen, Sweden: 1910 and 1998 compared / Tomas Nihlén.

Title: Palsas in Härjedalen, Sweden: 1910 and 1998 compared / Tomas Nihlén.
Author(s): Nihlén, Tomas.
Date: 2000.
In: Geografiska Annaler. Series A. Physical Geography. (2000.), Vol. 82A(1) (2000)
Abstract: In 1998 finds several small palsa-like features with ice cores in area near Helagsfjället, Härjedalen where botanist Harry Smith found palsas in 1910. In one mound hard ice core survives at depth of 0.3 m in peat. This is most southerly location known with palsa-like forms in Sweden at present. Survival is in spite of warmer climate conditions, and probably depends on strong winds thinning out snowcover.
