Abstract:

This study used ground-penetrating radar to map groundwater (sub- and supra-permafrost) and bedrock and permafrost constraints to water flow at Fort Wainright, Alaska. Active layer parameters, depth of perennial thaw, and permafrost dialectic permittivity were measured.

Purpose:

Scientific Research
