Abstract

This research examines potential past and future permafrost distribution in the Colorado Front Range by calibrating an existing permafrost model using a standard adiabatic rate for mountains (0.5°C per 100 m) for a 4°C range of cooler and warmer temperatures. According to the model, permafrost currently covers about 12 per cent of the entire study area. In a 4°C cooler climate 73.7 per cent of the study area could be covered by permafrost, whereas in a 4°C warmer climate almost no permafrost would be found
