Temperature as an environmental factor in the Arctowski Station Area (King George Island, South Shetlands Islands)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



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)
