Overview of Frozen
Ground Research Published
NSIDC scientist Tingjun Zhang's invited overview of snow cover
and frozen ground was published December 31, 2005, in the journal Reviews
"Influence of the Seasonal Snow Cover on the Ground Thermal Regime: An Overview," provides
a synthesis of current scientific understanding of the affect of snow cover
on frozen ground. Zhang's article synthesizes a complicated issue and collects
the pertinent research into a single source.
One of the reasons for the article's significance is that it underscores
the increasing importance of frozen ground in today's changing world.
