This study examined local variability of heat flux within a north-facing hillslope in Wolf Creek basin, Yukon, during the thawed season of 1997. Ground heat flux was calculated by : 1) assessing vertical conduction and convection inputs using nearsurface temperature gradients and rainfall and 2) combining the sensible heat from ground temperature change with the latent heat associated with melting ground ice. Discussion of the effectiveness of these 2 approaches in determining ground heat flux in slopes
