Permafrost plays an important role in global climate change, in the balance of greenhouse gases, arctic environment ecosystems, and human activities in the Polar Regions (ACIA,AMAP,Hinzman et al.,Romanovsky et al., a, Shakhova et al., ).Changes in climatic parameters, particularly the air temperature, snow depth, and duration of the warm period.

Deformations of pipelines in regions on permafrost are commonly associated with frost heave and subsidence processes, ground ice melting, water logging and thermokarst development, and thermoerosion and solifluction on slopes.

Above-ground pipelines may experience deformation associated with intensified frost heave as the active-layer increases. Tundra Tundra is the global biome that consists of the treeless regions in the north (Arctic tundra) and high mountains (alpine tundra).

The vegetation of tundra is low growing, and consists mainly of sedges, grasses, dwarf shrubs, wildflowers, mosses, and lichens. In North America in the s, intense public debates took place over proposals to build a trans-Alaska oil pipeline as well as natural gas pipelines through Yukon Territory and the Mackenzie Valley.

The thawing permafrost is a problem for many communities, as housing and water supplies, but also oil and gas pipelines or roads, may be at risk (ACIA, ). The phenomenon of Arctic greening and northward movement of ecosystem zones (CAFF, ) reshape the landscape which forms the basis of Arctic livelihood.

At present, considerable quantities of carbon are stored in permafrost, both in peatlands and mineral soils, and release of such carbon following permafrost thawing may accentuate climate change.

Data collected throughout the circumpolar North indicate that the temperature in near-surface permafrost has increased in response to climate warming. An important idiom common across the circumpolar North is “the centrality of the hearth in social life and of commensality with the home fire itself” (p.

The diverse topics discussed in the book intertwine to show how ‘home’ is defined as something that encompasses the entire cultural landscape in the circumpolar north.

Background. The presence and dynamic nature of ice-rich permafrost constitutes a distinctive engineering environment (Andersland and Ladanyi, ; Muller, ).Many engineering problems in the Arctic are associated with: (1) changes in the temperature of the upper permafrost; (2) increased depth of seasonal thaw penetration; and (3) progressive thawing and disappearance of by: ISBN: X: OCLC Number: Description: xliii, pages ; 26 cm: Contents: Part I Introduction and characteristics of permafrost 1 Definition and description Introduction Additional terms originating in Russia History of permafrost research Measurement of ground temperature Conduction, convection and advection Thermal regimes in regions.

The circumpolar North spans the eight nations that constitute the Arctic Council and draws interest from dozens of other countries. Furthermore, changes in the Arctic have global implications. An alternative docking scenario may be feasible in the event that offshore hydrocarbon development occurs and subsea pipelines extend onshore.

It may. USGS permafrost studies, which played a major role in the success of engineered structures such as the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, now are being used to help monitor climate change.

USGS scientists are studying borehole temperatures on the North Slope and have found that this region already has warmed 2 to 4 degrees Celsius during this century.
