Northern regions are experiencing considerable climate change affecting the state of permafrost, peat accumulation rates, and the large pool of carbon (C) stored in soil, thereby emphasizing the importance of monitoring surface C fluxes in different landform sites along a climate gradient.

The primary factor that distinguishes wetlands from other land forms or water bodies is the characteristic vegetation of aquatic plants, adapted to the unique hydric ds play a number of functions, including water purification, water storage.

Patterned ground is a periglacial phenomenon often found in proglacial and paraglacial settings (Washburn, ; ).The Glossary of Permafrost and Related Ground-Ice Terms defines patterned ground as ‘any ground surface exhibiting a discernibly ordered, more-or-less symmetrical, morphological patterns of ground and, where present, vegetation’ (Permafrost Author: W.

For example, surficial and bedrock geology surveys provide vital information on the nature and origin of soil parent materials. To better understand this climate change impact, recent studies examine changes in soil physical properties and hydrology associated with permafrost thaw, how permafrost will thaw across a heterogeneous landscape, as well as the temperature and moisture constraints on the decomposition of previously frozen carbon (Grosse et alHinzman et Cited by:
