Record #173468:

Ground penetrating radar observations of open system pingos, Adventalen, Svalbard / Neil Ross, Charles Harris, Hanne H. Christiansen, Peter J. Brabham.

Title: Ground penetrating radar observations of open system pingos, Adventalen, Svalbard / Neil Ross, Charles Harris, Hanne H. Christiansen, Peter J. Brabham.
Author(s): Ross, Neil.
Harris, Charles.
Christiansen, Hanne H.
Brabham, Peter J.
Date: 2005.
In: Norsk Geografisk Tidsskrift. (2005.), Vol. 59(2) (2005)
Abstract: Describes GPR investigations of two open system pingos (Innerhytte and Riverbed), before initiation of active-layer thawing. Surveys at frequencies of 50 and 100 MHz are used to interpret internal structure, origins and evolution. Suggests cores are not composed entirely of pure massive ice. Strong subsurface reflections within cores represent either presence of alternating shales and ice units, or variations in chemistry, ice crystal properties or air content of pingo ice. Discusses origin of injected groundwater. In special issue Permafrost geomporphological systems in a changing global climate, edited by Ole Humlun and Ketil Isaksen.
