  • [1] This study examines the interrelated effects of snow and ice on ground thermal conditions beneath regions of shallow water within the nearshore zone of the Mackenzie Delta. Field- and model-based data were used to determine the thermal boundary conditions at the sediment bed surface and to define the contemporary limit of permafrost. Over two consecutive winters, mean sediment bed temperatures deviated up to 9.8°C beneath bottom-fast ice that ranged from 10 cm to 100 cm thick, with… CONTINUE READING
