Geophysical Monitoring of Permafrost

12 June 202410:00 AM (CDT) As the climate warms rapidly in the North, permafrost thaw is affecting infrastructure, landscapes, ecosystems, and carbon fluxes. Geophysical methods like electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) can be used to characterize permafrost conditions at the site scale and evaluate changes over time. This presentation will discuss recent advances in geophysical monitoring of permafrost, including time-lapse ERT datasets collected in northern Canada, the implementation of automated ERT systems, and the recent initiation
