Banks Island July 2003 Field Report



A group of 19 researchers and students from the University of Alaska Fairbanks and other U.S. and Canadian organizations gathered at Green Cabin, northern Banks Island in July 2003. The team was interested in the interactions between the frost-boil heave processes, the soil, and the vegetation; and how complex interactions between these elements vary along the Arctic bioclimate gradient. A major goal of the project is to develop models that can help explain how frost heave patterns, soils and vegetation will respond to climate change.
