C34. The fate and legacy of permafrost - AGU session

Anna Liljedahl
C34. THE FATE AND LEGACY OF PERMAFROST: GEOCHEMICAL, GEOPHYSICAL, AND
GEOMORPHIC ASPECTS

Landscapes underlain by permafrost reflect a legacy of climate
history, and can be sensitive to climate change.  Predicting the
effects of climate change on permafrost landscapes requires accurate
characterization of geophysical controls on permafrost dynamics. This
session seeks to combine diverse areas of permafrost geophysical
study, from regional thermal monitoring networks to targeted process
investigations, remote sensing, and modeling at diverse scales.  We
welcome submission of work on thermokarst and active layer dynamics,
geochemical indicators, and geomorphic evolution of permafrost
landscapes, as well as paleoclimate studies incorporating preservation
of ground ice morphologies through time.
