Der Wärmehaushalt periglazialer Hochgebirgsböden – Zusammenhänge zwischen Bodentiefe und Frostwechseln (Nördlicher Tian Shan, Kasachstan)

Henry Munack & Hilmar Schröder
Ground temperature measurements have been carried out at eleven different sites of the Prokhodnaja valley in the high mountains of the Zailijskij Alatau (Northern Tian Shan, Kazakhstan) between the summers of 2003 and 2004. For this purpose the periglacial zone and adjacent altitudinal zones have been examined between 2,500 and 4,000 m asl with an equidistance of 250 m. The influences of the altitude, the exposure as well as the depth below the earth’s surface...
