Abstract

This paper aims to more fully delineate the manner in which the unique nature of the high-latitude environment influences the physical processes that drive the energy and mass fluxes at the terrestrial surface. The surface energy balance in this environment is of particular significance because of major influences exerted by the longevity of the winter snow cover, the characteristics of the topography, soils, and vegetation, and the occurrence of permafrost. The AA. hypothesize that it is a very sensitive environment climatically and as a result the energy and carbon fluxes will undergo a rapid and large magnitude response to climatic change
