Record #199764:

Permafrost and peatland evolution in the northern Hudson Bay lowland, Manitoba / Larry D. Dyke, Wendy E. Sladen.

Title: Permafrost and peatland evolution in the northern Hudson Bay lowland, Manitoba / Larry D. Dyke, Wendy E. Sladen.
Author(s): Dyke, Larry D.
Sladen, Wendy E.
Date: 2010.
In: Arctic. (2010.), Vol. 63(4) (2010)
Abstract: Reports that mapping and thermal modelling of frozen peat plateau stability in northrn Hudson Bay lowland indicate that permafrost peatlands are stable at mean annual air temperature as warm as -3.5°C. In peat plateaus of northern lowland, permafrost can be absent at peat plateau margins where peat plateaus border fens or lakes. Here, insulating snow accumulations permit thawed conditions at mean annual air temperatures colder than -3.5°C.
Notes:

Arctic. Vol. 63(4) :429-441 (2010).
