Abstract

Ground thermal and hydrological regimes at Madoi (4273m ASL), northeastern Tibetan Plateau, are described on the basis of 2 years of automatic and manual observations of air and ground temperatures, precipitation, snow depth, soil moisture and groundwater level. Extrapolation of the mean annual ground temperatures suggests that permafrost is unlikely present below an unfrozen talik, while it possibly disappeared within the last few decades. Soil moisture and groundwater level primary vary with the annual frost regime and summer precipitation
