Abstract

The properties, distribution patterns and thermal processes that influence the active layer and permafrost in the Transantarctic Mountains region of Antarctica, as deduced from soil investigation since 1964 and drilling investigations since 1990, are outlined. The AA. describe the variation in permafrost properties and associated patterns of distribution at both macro- and micro-scales and discuss factors that influence the thermal characteristics of permafrost in the Transantarctic Mountains region
