Abstract

The AA. show the significant impact that hydro-thermal underground erosion can have on the drainage system in a permafrost environment with well-developed ice wedges. They describe the formation of tunnels and the associated gullies with observations made on Bylot Island, during the summers of 1999, 2001 and 2002
