Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
Recent ground temperature and observational data for lithalsas (permafrost mounds of ice-rich, fine-grained sediments) are examined in the context of an inventory of thermokarst ponding between 1945 and 2005, subarctic Canadian Shield. Results show that many lithalsas are thermally and physically degrading, and widespread thermokarst primarily relates to lithalsa distribution. Future thermokarst development in this region of extensive discontinuous permafrost will continue to be associated with lithalsas that generally lack a protective surface organic layer.
Résumé(Résumé en langage clair et simple, non publié)
Recent ground temperature and observational data for lithalsas (permafrost mounds of ice-rich, fine-grained sediments) are examined in the context of an inventory of thermokarst (ground settlement when ice-rich permafrost thaws) ponding between 1945 and 2005, subarctic Canadian Shield. Results show that many lithalsas are thermally and physically degrading, and widespread thermokarst primarily relates to lithalsa distribution. Future thermokarst development in this region of extensive discontinuous permafrost will continue to be associated with lithalsas that generally lack a protective surface organic layer.
