A continuous record is presented of active layer processes at Endalen, Svalbard, over the period 2005-08. The AA. seek to measure the response of the active layer to year-on-year climatic variability, and hence to provide a clearer understanding of the likely impacts of longer term and larger scale changes in climate. The first 3 years of measurements reported here represent the initial phase of a planned long-term solifluction monitoring programme. Comparisons between the 3 annual cycles of ground freezing and ground thawing discussed in this paper (years 2005-06, 2006-07 and 2007-08) relate to the period 1 October to 30 September inclusive
