Abstract

Climatic data were examinated for some ten weather recording stations, in order to verify the presence of favorable conditions for preserving sparadic mountain permafrost in the Maiella Massif (Central Apennines, Italy). Analyzing the situation it is possible to infer that the bottom temperatures of winter snow cover recorded in the Upper Cannella Valley, where sun irradiation is particularly reduced and wind blows very energetically during the cold period, demonstrate that permafrost can exist even at relatively low altitudes (ca. 2400 m a.s.l.) in particular morphologic conditions. - (NF)
