Depth to permafrost up to 40 feet in cleared or burned-over areas.   Permafrost, a layer of frozen underground soil that rings the circumpolar north, contains far more carbon than the atmosphere holds today -- and it's thawing. Scientists in Alaska are working to.

69).Cited by: From introduction: This report describes the destructive effect of permafrost on cultivated fields and delineates the parts of the Fairbanks area which are least suitable for agriculture because of the character of the underlying permafrost.

Studies by the author indicate that agriculture will be affected by similar permafrost conditions throughout areas on the north side of the Tanana Valley.

Permafrost is a naturally occurring material that has a temperature below 0°C continuously for 2 or more years (Muller,p. 3).This layer of frozen ground is designated exclusively on. We examined the effects of fire disturbance on permafrost degradation and thaw settlement across a series of wildfires (from Alaska book to ) in the forested areas of collapse‐scar bog complexes in the Tanana Flats lowland of interior Alaska.

In the permafrost areas of North America and Siberia, there is often a peculiar topography of pits, dry gullies and valleys, small hummocks and closed depressions, frequently with lakes.

This. Permafrost does not have to be the first layer that is on the ground. It can be an inch to over miles deep into the Earth's surface. Some of the most common permafrost locations are located in the Northern Hemisphere. Almost a quarter of the Northern Hemisphere is underlain by permafrost, including 85% of Alaska, Greenland, Canada and Siberia.

Undisturbed permafrost is associated with very high resistivity values, whereas newly forming permafrost in the burned area has slightly lower resistivity. Evidence for a talik beneath the newly forming permafrost is supported by low resistivity at depth in the unburned portion of the transect.

Huang et al. () has described the UAF frost heave experiment facility in detail. As indicated, a m diameter, m long chilled pipeline with X65 grade and 9 mm wall thickness was used. The first 30 m of the pipeline were in a shallower supra-permafrost table area and the rest 75 m were in unfrozen ground — a deeper supra-permafrost table area.

This NSF IPY # research project integrates field studies in a range of disciplines (geomorphology, geophysics, paleoecology, hydrology, limnology) with process modeling of permafrost thaw, lake formation, carbon cycling, and greenhouse gas emissions to understand how permafrost degradation in the Arctic, particularly thermokarst-lake.

“One major take home from our paper is that, at least in the study area we looked at, beavers can really influence what we look at for surface water changes in permafrost regions,” said Benjamin Jones, a research assistant professor at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and the lead author of a study published recently in Environmental.

Permafrost (perenially frozen ground) • Underlies 25% of Northern Hemisphere landmass • Limits decomposition of organic matter • Contains more than 50% of global soil organic matter (. Alaska’s permafrost, shown here inis no longer is starting to thaw. Bymuch of this frozen ground, a storehouse of ancient carbon, could be gone.
