Response of permafrost landscapes of Central Yakutia on current changes of climate, and anthropogenic impacts

A.N. Fedorov, P.Ya. Konstantinov

We discuss the state of permafrost landscapes of Central Yakutia under the influence of current changes of climate and anthropogenic impacts. This study uses the data from the monitoring stations operated by the Permafrost Institute SB RAS, and from the Yakutsk and Pokrovsk meteorological stations. It is found that there is a rather good correlation between the data from the monitoring stations and from the Pokrovsk meteorological station. The last decade saw a considerable rise in temperatures of earth materials. The most sensitive to climate change are the disturbed landscapes, primarily treeless landscapes such as anthropogenic complexes, and burned-out forests.

Keywords: permafrost landscape, climate change, temperature of earth materials, cryogenic processes, thermokarst.
