Abstract

Data on the temperature of the air and bodies of water, as well as soil at depths 5-100 cm were collected in the vicinity of the Polish Arctowski Station on King George Island in the years 1979-1998. The temperature data for the soil surface layer showed no clear trends, while air temperature increased. Soil temperature exceeded 0°C during six months of the year, which is two months longer than measured for the air temperature. The prevailing soil surface temperature ranged between -0.1°C and -2.0°C, with the mean annual temperature being 0.5°C. This is higher than the mean annual air temperature of -1.6°C. Temperature of the Admiralty Bay waters affect the fluctuations and change in the soil temperature of the near-shore oasis. - (BJ)
