Energy balance and thermal regime on the soil surface: Livingston Island
Entry ID: CNDA-ESP_ANT93-1000-CO2

Abstract: In English:

The energy exchange between soil and atmosphere in polar summer regions is an
efficient process to thawing active layer. In this project we have controlled
different meteorological (air temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction,
net radiation) and soil thermodynamic parameters (heat soil flux and gradient
of temperature) in order to relate the balance energy on the surface with ... View entire text
