[1] The balance of thermokarst lakes with bedfastand floating-ice regimes across Arctic lowlands regulates heat storage, permafrost thaw, winter-water supply, and overwintering aquatic habitat. Using a time-series of late-winter synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery to distinguish lake ice regimes in two regions of the Arctic Coastal Plain of northern Alaska from 2003–2011, we found that 18% of the lakes had intermittent ice regimes, varying between bedfastice and floating-ice conditions… CONTINUE READING
