Climate change, permafrost, and impacts on civil infrastructure / Frederick E. Nelson, Lawson W. Brigham.

Title: Climate change, permafrost, and impacts on civil infrastructure / Frederick E. Nelson, Lawson W. Brigham.
Author(s): Nelson, Frederick E.
Brigham, Lawson W.
Date: 2003.
Publisher: Arlington, Virginia: United States. Arctic Research Commmission Permafrost Task Force Report
Abstract: Presents findings of task force chartered in 2002 by US Arctic Research Commission with object of identifying key issues and research needs to foster greater understanding of global change impacts on permafrost in Arctic and linkages to natural and human systems. Reports evidence of widespread warming of permafrost and observations of thawing - conditions which have serious, long-term implications for Alaska's transportation network, for Trans-Alaska Pipeline and for 100,000 Alaskan citizens living in permafrost areas.
