Physical parameters in the study of atmosphere/permafrost interaction to describe the annual active layer evolution. Livingston and Deception islands
Entry ID: CNDA-ESP_ANT1998-0571

Abstract: In English:

The goal of this proposal will be developed a physical model of the soil
thermal regime in a permafrost terrain and validate with soil temperatures and
radiation balance measurements at Livingston and Deception Islands
(Antarctica). The model will be designed to be general applicability to the
work area and it could be used as a predictive tool of the effect of climate
change on soil ... View entire text
