PERMOS – a comprehensive monitoring network of mountain permafrost in the Swiss Alps


Vonder Muehll, D; Noetzli, J; Roer, I (2008). PERMOS – a comprehensive monitoring network of mountain permafrost in the Swiss Alps. In: 9th International Conference on Permafrost, Fairbanks, Alaska, 29 June 2008 - 3 July 2008, 1869-1874.

Abstract

Permafrost Monitoring in Switzerland (PERMOS) has been built up since the early 1990s. After a 6-year pilot phase starting in 2000, PERMOS has taken root. In 2007, all potential PERMOS elements were evaluated based on the criteria and categorised into (A) approved element, (B) element subject to verification in the next two years, and (C) no PERMOS element. The concept “PERMOS 2007” was updated and adapted accordingly. All approved elements will fulfill defined technological and methodological standards. Hence, in 2010, PERMOS will be a sound, sustainable observation network with two types of PERMOS stations: (1) drill sites building the basis of the monitoring network, and (2) kinematic sites, where systematic observations of permafrost geomorphodynamics are performed, allowing for an integral assessment of the permafrost state in the Swiss Alps. PERMOS is presently active in four regions: Upper Engadine, Bernese Oberland, Matter Valley, and “Quatre Vallées.”

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
