AbstractThe heat exchange between the ground and the atmosphere in the North is extremely important in the formation and continued existence of permafrost. An understanding of this process and how it is influenced by surface terrain features such as vegetation is vital in furthering knowledge of the thermal regime and other characteristics of permafrost having important engineering implication. Investigations in this field are underway in Canada and the U.S.S.R. This article was written by a senior worker at the Permafrost Institute, Academy of Sciences of the U.S.S.R., Yakutsk in Eastern Siberia. It reviews North American and Soviet studies and presents analytical material pertaining to the important role of vegetation in the heat exchange between the permafrost and the atmosphere.
