—A central characteristic of soil in the arctic is its load bearing capacity since that property influences forest harvester mobility, flooding dynamics and infrastructure potential. The hydraulic conductivity has the greatest dynamical influence to bearing capacity and hence is essential to measure or estimate. In addition, the arctic soil type information(More)
Growth decline of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) on reforestation sites with fine-textured soils are suggested to be due to periodic soil wetness. In this study, Scots pine seedlings were exposed to waterlogging in fine-textured till soil in growth chambers. The treatments started 5 weeks after germination and lasted either for 3 or 8.5 weeks. Three weeks(More)
Water permeability is a key concept when estimating load bearing capacity, mobility and infrastructure potential of a terrain. Northern sub-arctic areas have rather similar dominant soil types and thus prediction methods successful at Northern Finland may generalize to other arctic areas. In this paper we have predicted water permeability using publicly(More)
