Changes in thermal structure of permafrost active layer in a dry polar climate, Petuniabukta, Svalbard / Grzegorz Rachlewicz, Witold Szczuciński.

Title: Changes in thermal structure of permafrost active layer in a dry polar climate, Petuniabukta, Svalbard / Grzegorz Rachlewicz, Witold Szczuciński.
Author(s): Rachlewicz, Grzegorz.
Szczuciński, Witold.
Date: 2008.
In: Polish Polar Research. (2008.), Vol. 29(3) (2008)
Abstract: Studies relationships between meteorological conditions, permafrost active layer thickness and thermal structure during four summer seasons (2000-2003) in central Spitsbergen. Determines ground sedimentological and mineralogical properties and measures air temperature and humidity, wind direction and velocity, precipitation, cloudiness, active layer thickness, and ground temperature at depths from 0.05 to 0.75 m. Discusses response of ground temperature and permafrost level to air temperature changes. Notes minor response to rainfall events. Finds interannual variations mainly related to variations in summer temperature and spring snow cover duration, with thermal structure of active layer governed by seasonal conditions regardless of overall climatic change.
