Measurements of water loss from permafrost (soil ice/moisture content) in an experimentally disturbed and undisturbed permafrost area near Scott Base
Entry ID: K150_1993_1994_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Water content measurements were made continuously from 15 bore holes at an experimentally disturbed and undisturbed site at Scott Base to measure the amount of water loss from permafrost, to compare changes in the soil ice/moisture content profiles and to study soil climate and soil hydrology relationships. An experimental site was created near Scott Base and monitored from December through till ... View entire text
