  4. 4. Estimating active layer thickness at the high Arctic study site Zackenberg from remotely sensed ground subsidence

    Author : Lotte Wendt; [2021]
    Keywords : active layer thickness; DInSAR; subsidence; permafrost; Zackenberg; CALM; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The active layer thickness (ALT) is an indicator of permafrost thaw, which potentially leads to the release of large amounts of greenhouse gases under global warming, and thus could further amplify climate change. The thaw depth of the active layer also governs seasonal surface deformation, caused by the volume change between ice to water, which poses risks for slope stability and infrastructure foundations.
