Thaw consolidation of permafrost soils in high-Arctic environments; RiS ID: 11815

The stability of permafrost soils is highly affected by the prevailing thermal regime. With warming ground temperatures and deepening of the active layer, thaw consolidation and associated ground subsidence are likely to occur. This is also expected for the surroundings of Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard. ...

Coastal erosion on the Brøgger peninsula, Svalbard; RiS ID 11582

Costal erosion is highly affected by sea ice duration and the thermal regime in the coastal rock walls. With the retreat of sea ice and a warming of permafrost temperatures, coastal erosion is likely to change. This is also expected for the coastal line of Brøgger peninsula, Svalbard. In this pr...
