  • About 750 examples of patterned ground forms at 25 sites in the High Sudetes mountains (Czech Republic) were classified using morphometric characteristics and environmental parameters. Simple parameters such as length, width and height of patterned
  • ground were measured in the field, with additional variables of elevation, intensity of deflation and regolith grain size. The surface morphometry of patterned ground, comprising relict sorted polygons and sorted nets and active earth hummocks

  • In the mountain area of Swedish Lapland, landforms with semicircular or horse-shoe ridges encircling hummocky ground occur. They are interpreted as landslide or avalanche deposits directly upon, from or adjacent to down-wasting ice. Since

  • Interannual changes in seasonal ground freezing and near-surface heat flow beneath zones of bottom-fast ice (BFI) were examined over the winters of 2005–06 and 2006–07 within the near-shore zone of the Mackenzie Delta. Winter variability in ground
  • thermal conditions was determined at 3 monitoring sites. When comparing conditions over the two winters, 2005–06 was characterised by a decrease in ice thickness that limited the extent of BFI and seasonal cooling of the ground. These changes in ice

  • Soil temperature, surface heave and downslope movements were monitored continuously for one year (1998-99) within a solifluction lobe developed on seasonally frozen ground in the Daisetsu Mountains, northern Japan. Observations were also made

  • A coupled heat and mass transfer model simulating mass and energy balance of the soil-snow-atmosphere boundary layer was applied to simulate ground temperatures, together with water and ice content evolution, in the active layer of an alpine
  • permafrost site on Schilthorn, Swiss Alps. Abrupt shifts and subsequent fluctuations in ground temperature observed in alpine permafrost boreholes at the beginning of the zero curtain phase in summer were explained by snowmelt and meltwater infiltration
  • process in the model. This process is constrained by initial ground temperatures, infiltrability and the availability of meltwater from the snow cover.

  • imbricata), to evaluate soil erosion and runoff, in semiarid Central Mexico. A comparative bare surface condition (Control) was also evaluated. Vegetative canopy and ground cover were computed using digital images. Selected soil parameters were determined
  • . Soil erosion was different for the studied vegetation conditions, decreasing as canopy and ground cover increased. A close relationship was found between soil properties and the surface hydrological processes of soil erosion and runoff, enhancing

  • A typical deep thermokarst was studied in the Beiluhe Basin. Lakeshore retrogression, water temperatures, and ground temperatures beneath and around the lake were monitored. About 80% of the lakeshore edge collapsed each year with a maximum rate
  • of about 1.8 m from August 2007 to October 2008. The warm season was the main period of shoreline collapse, especially from August to October. Overall, the high degree of disturbance associated with the thermokarst lake is shown by mean annual ground
