Ground temperature variability on a glacier foreland, Storbreen, Jotunheimen, Norway / Colin E. Thorn, Robert G. Darmody, Charles E. Allen.

Title: Ground temperature variability on a glacier foreland, Storbreen, Jotunheimen, Norway / Colin E. Thorn, Robert G. Darmody, Charles E. Allen.
Author(s): Thorn, Colin E.
Darmody, Robert G.
Allen, Charles E.
Date: 2008.
In: Norsk Geografisk Tidsskrift. (2008.), Vol. 62(4) (2008)
Abstract: Analyzes ground temperature variation measured at 10 cm and 50 cm depths over two years across glacier foreland of Storbreen. Examines differences between temperatures at two depths, broad characteristics of shallow ground temperatures and impacts of elevation and microtopography on seasonal and annual temperatures. Calculates annual and seasonal lapse rates at 10 cm-depth beneath tundra, moraine crests and moraine proximal base positions. Reports temperature differences due to microtopography comparable to those between elevations of ~100 m and ~300 m. Notes variability with elevation and microtopographical position of thawed, freeze-thaw, isothermal and frozen days, and examines variability in growing conditions by calculating thawing and growing degree days.
