[1] A finite element geothermal model is developed for the outer Mackenzie Delta-Beaufort Sea shelf to predict permafrost evolution since the Last Interglacial ~130–116 kaBP(cal). The purpose is to reconcile sparse observations of the depth and extent of ice-bonded permafrost with sediment properties and the paleoenvironment. Sea level curves determine, as a function of time, areas of the shelf that were subaerially exposed, promoting permafrost aggradation, and areas that were submerged… CONTINUE READING
