Abstract

The temperature regime of alpine permafrost is altered by the generally warmer atmospheric temperatures of recent decades. This paper characterizes the 2 boreholes at Stockhorn and provides a discussion of a full year's temperature data with emphasis on the clearly-visible effect of topography on the temperature profile. A conceptual framework for the interpretation of permafrost geothermal data below complex topography and the modelling of temperature histories based on these data is also proposed
