Record #183180:

The structure and dynamics of earth hummocks in the subarctic forest near Inuvik, Northwest Territories, Canada / S.V. Kokelj, C.R. Burn, C. Tarnocai.

Title: The structure and dynamics of earth hummocks in the subarctic forest near Inuvik, Northwest Territories, Canada / S.V. Kokelj, C.R. Burn, C. Tarnocai.
Author(s): Kokelj, S. V.
Burn, C. R.
Tarnocai, C.
Date: 2007.
In: Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research. (2007.), Vol. 39(1) (2007)
Abstract: Describes surface microrelief, permafrost table configuration, ground-ice, and soil organic-matter contents for three sites near Inuvik, NWT, that are characterised by collapsed, poorly-developed, and well-developed earth hummocks. Finds aggradational-ice development is principal mechanism driving modification of hummock form; also active-layer deepening leading to destruction of bowl-shaped permafrost table and degradation of near-surface ground ice is primary cause of subsidence and outward spreading of well-developed hummocks.
