Record #195008:

Geophysical characteristics of permafrost in the Abisko area, northern Sweden / Wojciech Dobiński.

Title: Geophysical characteristics of permafrost in the Abisko area, northern Sweden / Wojciech Dobiński.
Author(s): Dobiński, Wojciech.
Date: 2009.
In: Polish Polar Research. (2009.), Vol. 31(2) (2009)
Abstract: Discusses mountain permafrost developments and permafrost origin and evolution, based on surveys from Storflaket mire, Mount Nuolia, Abisko Research Station, and Björkstugans roche moutonnée, using resistivity tomography and electromagnetic mapping, and calibrations where possible from pits. Associates extensive mountain permafrost, especially above 900 m a.s.l., with air temperature decrease above 500 m a.s.l. Identifies sporadic Arctic permafrost at lower altitudes. Local rock and soil conditions largely determine permafrost thickness and extent. Associates c. 30 m-thick permanent permafrost in lowland Abisko with earlier cold period, e.g. Little Ice Age. Notes presence of discontinuous/sporadic permafrost occurs at mean annual temperatures around -1°C, in conditions much milder than thought to cause permafrost.
