Permafrost

Permafrost

The primary focus of the research each August is to develop a model that will allow anyone to predict the depth of the Active Layer—the layer of ground above the permafrost that melts and freezes each year—based on the vegetation growing on the surface of the tundra, other surface indicators, and environmental factors. At each site in Churchill and Wapusk data is collected on categorical vegetation cover, species specific analysis, and Active Layer Thickness (ALT). Data from this study is used as ground controls for remote satellite imaging.
