  • Longer description:
    Ny-Ĺlesund is the world's northernmost permanent settlement situated on the island of Spitsbergen in the Svalbard archipelago, only 1,200 km from the North Pole. In addition to ground ice and permafrost mapping possibilities there are locations that include large amounts of buried glacier covered by layers of sediments that comprise mixtures of silicate minerals and organic material. The permafrost depth is estimated to be ~100 m in coastal areas and >500 m in mountainous areas. The active layer depth at the field site is estimated to be ~2 m and is the layer that experiences thawing in the summer/autumn.
