Description :
This paper has applied the results of different temperature change scenarios to analysis of changing frost parameters in northern England. The thermal climate of the region has been represented by comparing annual frost frequency and annual frost accumulation (below 0°C) with the baseline situation. The baseline climate is based on backward stepwise regression using up to ten terrains variables. Changes in both frost parameters are considerable, especially in the 2 general circulation model (GCM) scenarios : the continental airflow scenario and the maritime airflow scenario.
