Simulating active layer thaw in a boreal environment / Ming-ko Woo, Michael Mollinga, Sharon L. Smith.

Title: Simulating active layer thaw in a boreal environment / Ming-ko Woo, Michael Mollinga, Sharon L. Smith.
Author(s): Woo, Ming-ko.
Mollinga, Michael.
Smith, Sharon L.
Date: 2006.
In: Géographie Physique et Quaternaire. (2006.), Vol. 60(1) (2006)
Abstract: Reports testing of algorithm to determine phase change of soil moisture using ground surface temperature as upper boundary condition and conduction to transfer heat to freeze-thaw front. Test is conducted on permafrost site near Wrigley, NWT, where computed thaw penetration compares satisfactorrily with field data. Also conducts ground-thaw simulation experiments on three sites in Mackenzie valley. Results of simulation demonstrate sensitivity of active layer thaw to soil materials, moisture content, and inter-annual variations in ground surface temperature.
