ABSTRACT The author studied the causal relationships between palsa formation, the maintenance of palsas, their final thawing, and climate. His main approach was to compare his observations with other researchers’ observations of recent palsa formation and degradation, and the use of relevant palaeoclimatic data. A more than 10 km2 large palsa mire complex in Sør-Varanger Municipality, northern Norway, was studied in terms of vegetation and stratigraphy 50 years ago, and then observed between…

Characteristics and fate of isolated permafrost patches in coastal Labrador, Canada
Abstract. Bodies of peatland permafrost were examined at five sites along a 300 km transect spanning the isolated patches permafrost zone in the coastal barrens of southeastern Labrador. Mean annual


Cyclic Development and Thermokarstic Degradation of Palsas in the Mid‐Alpine Zone at Leirpullan, Dovrefjell, Southern Norway
The palsas of Leirpullan are developed in deltaic sands and silts in the zone of alpine permafrost at an altitude of 1437 m (estimated mean annual air temperature −2.7°C). Five mounds that represent
Accelerated thawing of subarctic peatland permafrost over the last 50 years
In this study we provide a quantification of the main patterns of change of a subarctic peatland caused by permafrost decay monitored between 1957 and 2003. Up‐thrusting of the peatland surface due
Degrading palsa mires in northern Europe : changing vegetation in an altering climate and its potential impact on greenhouse gas fluxes
The on-going global warming is projected to have large impacts on the arctic and subarctic environment. Especially vulnerable are ecosystems with narrow climatic envelopes and with small
En palsmyr sydost om Kebnekaise
Abstract The author has examined a marsh with palses (from a Finnish word) in the high mountains SE of Kebnekaise, Lapland, Sweden. The palses are hummocks of frozen peat permanently stratified with
1200 years of warm-season temperature variability in central Scandinavia inferred from tree-ring density
Abstract. Despite the emergence of new high-resolution temperature reconstructions around the world, only a few cover the Medieval Climate Anomaly (MCA). Here we present C-Scan, a new Scots pine
A 1200-year multiproxy record of tree growth and summer temperature at the northern pine forest limit of Europe
Combining nine tree growth proxies from four sites, from the west coast of Norway to the Kola Peninsula of NW Russia, provides a well replicated (> 100 annual measurements per year) mean index of
Global Impacts of the 1600 Eruption of Peru's Huaynaputina Volcano
The human impacts of the 1815 eruption of Tambora volcano in eastern Indonesia are well known. The sulfur injected into the stratosphere by that eruption produced a veil of sunlight-reflecting
1600 AD Huaynaputina Eruption (Peru), Abrupt Cooling, and Epidemics in China and Korea
The 1600 AD Huaynaputina eruption in Peru was one of the largest volcanic eruptions in history over the past 2000 years. This study operated on the hypothesis that this event dramatically affected
