Abstract

Results from extensive, spatially-oriented field investigations conducted in the Kuparuk River region of north-central Alaska were used in conjunction with a simple analytical procedure to provide a comprehensive analysis of active-layer variability under contemporary climate. This approach, based on Stefan's solution to the heat-conduction problem with phase change, uses air temperature as the forcing function. The analysis of annual thaw-depth fields indicates that interannual climatic variability causes significant changes in active-layer thickness
