From relict polygon patterns in South Scandinavia to active ice wedge polygons in Svalbard: a review of former studies / Harald Svensson.

Title: From relict polygon patterns in South Scandinavia to active ice wedge polygons in Svalbard: a review of former studies / Harald Svensson.
Author(s): Svensson, Harald.
Date: 2005.
In: Norsk Geografisk Tidsskrift. (2005.), Vol. 59(2) (2005)
Abstract: Discusses networks of relict ice wedge polygons revealed in vegetation patterns in aerial photographs; on Swedish west coast and south-western Jutland, Denmark, and in north-eastern Norway (as pattern of shallow trenches). Most regularly shaped polygons occur in Jutland, reflecting prolonged periglacial frost activity around Weichselian ice sheet. Shoreline records show other polygon areas were in early deglaciated regions and last active in Younger Dryas. Discusses mean annual air temperatures during ice wedge formation. Reports observations of ice wedge dynamics in high-Arctic Adventdalen, Svalbard. Interprets secondary wedges observed in active wedges in valley plain as indicators of climatic cooling. In special issue Permafrost geomporphological systems in a changing global climate, edited by Ole Humlun and Ketil Isaksen.
