To Friday 28 April 2017
EGU 2017, Vienna, Austria, 23-28 April 2017
At least two sessions will be organized with the focus on permafrost-affected soils:
“Permafrost-affected soils” session (SSS9.13/BG9.45/CL4.06/CR4.7): The importance of permafrost-affected soils, both at high latitudes and high elevations, in the global carbon cycle and related potential soil transformations due to climate change have been identified. The participants of this session are welcome to present their results on various aspects of permafrostaffected soils including soil genesis, classification, the relationships between permafrost-affected soil properties and changing environmental factors (e.g. productivity and plant species compositions) as well as mapping of soil properties by taking into account soil spatial distribution and variability.
“Soils in Space and Time:Paleocryosols” session (SSS3.7). Soils in polar and boreal regions play a decisive role on the environmental dynamics of the terrestrial ecosystem. Some of these areas have experienced very significant warming trends during the last decades, resulting in change of the dynamics of these soils with implications on the environment system. The aim of the session is to bring to light the state of progress in knowledge of soils in these regions, considering human and natural dynamics.
