Abstract

Studies of the ground temperatures and hydrological conditions at four sites on a subalpine heath and in the birch forest in the subarctic valley in Abisko from 1984-87 show that a clear relationship exists between ground temperature and climatic parameters, especially precipitation through the effects of snow cover. The effects of precipitation poor summers in 1985-87 and the colder than normal and snow poor winters of 1985 and 1987 were instrumental in intensifying the effects of seasonal frost at all of the sites
