Summary

We used the CRU (1950-1959 and 2000-2009) and projected 5-GCM composite (2001-2010, 2051-2060, and 2091-2100) decadal climate forcing, ecotype (Stevens 2001), soil landscape (Clark and Duffy 2006), and snow (unpublished) maps of DENA to model the presence or absence of near-surface permafrost, temperature at the bottom of seasonal freeze-thaw layer and its thickness within DENA. We produced permafrost temperature, and active-layer and seasonally-frozen-layer thickness distribution maps through this modeling effort at a pixel spacing of 28 m. This is an immense improvement over the spatial resolution of existing permafrost maps on any part of Alaska, whether produced through the spatially explicit thermal modeling of ground temperatures [...]
