Abstract

The n-factor (ratio of temperature at the soil surface to that in the air) has considerable potential as a tool for mapping active-layer thickness and other geocryological parameters by providing refinements to relatively simple analytic solutions for the depth of thaw. Here, results of that work in nortnern Alaska are presented and compared to those from a more data-intense mapping procedure (Nelson et al., 1997) that would require substantial amounts of fieldwork to implement in other remote regions
