Ground temperatures and thermal properties, as well as active layer thickness are influenced by many factors. Of major importance are the geographical, climatological and meteorological variables, such as location, slope exposition, elevation, distance to open waters and seas, sediment type, water content, snow cover, albedo of the ground surface, vegetation and others. Being one of the most important indicators of climate change, permafrost phenomena have been topics of many scientific studies. The geomorhological measurements and periglacial processes will be presented during this lesson.
