  2. 2. Analysis of the global ESA GlobPermafrost map for Scandinavia

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Nina Nesterova; [2018]
    Keywords : Physical Geography and Ecosystem analysis; Arctic; permafrost; permafrost modeling; TTOP; CryoGRID 1; GlobPermafrost; Scandinavia; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Due to its high vulnerability, permafrost is one of the key features studied in the field of climate change impacts. Permafrost is widespread in the Arctic region. READ MORE

  3. 3. Influence of soil moisture content and infiltration on ground temperature and active layer depth in a river terrace in Adventdalen, Svalbard

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi

    Author : Carina Schuh; [2015]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The active layer constitutes an important subsystem of permafrost environments. Thermal andhydrological processes in the active layer determine local phenomena such as erosion, hydrologicaland ecosystem changes, and can have implications for the global carbon-climate feedback.

  4. 4. Modelling vegetation dynamics and carbon fluxes in a high Arctic mire

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Laura Reinelt; [2015]
    Keywords : methane dynamics; biogeochemical cycling; vegetation dynamics; ecosystem modelling; LPJ-GUESS; geography; physical geography; high Arctic wetland; Zackenberg; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : High Arctic wetlands are an important component of the global climate system. Nevertheless estimations of their expected response to climate change and associated climate-feedbacks have large uncertainties. Improving models for vegetation and carbon dynamics of ecosystems is an important step towards making predictions more accurate. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modeling the effect of activelayer deepening on stocks ofsoil organic carbon in thePechora River Basin

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och kvartärgeologi (INK)

    Author : Pia Eriksson; [2012]
    Keywords : permafrost; global warming; carbon cycling; GIS;

    Abstract : This study investigates how the estimated thickening of the active layer will affectthe soil organic carbon in permafrost soils. The focus lies on estimating how muchof the upper permafrost soil organic carbon will be affected by the active layerdeepening due to global warming, on what timescale the deepening will take placeand if the estimated changes differ depending on the extent of permafrost in theregion.
