Abstract

The basal temperature of snow (BTS) method was used to predict the distribution of permafrost within a mountainous basin located in the southern Yukon Territory. A modelled BTS surface, based on several hundred measured values, was created within a Geographic Information System (GIS) environment using elevation and potential incoming solar radiation as independent variables. The distribution of frozen ground at 200 test sites was compared to the modelled BTS values using logistic regression. The resultant map of permafrost probability shows that all 4 conventional permafrost distribution classes are present within the basin
