Presentation Transcript

  1. “Jammin”: • Message from Mauro Guglielmin – Jammin Jim • David Gilichinsky – Earth Cryology Conf., Pushchino • Lynn Everett – U.S. Permafrost Assoc. • Group Discussion of key workshop issues – Jammin John (8:15-9:15 a.m.) • Permafrost database/map • Soils database/maps • Overall database management • (Please save discussion on future research needs and priorities for Thursday) • Instructions – Break Out Groups

  2. Instructions for Break-Out Groups International Workshop on Antarctic Permafrost and Soils

  3. Break-Out Sessions: • Permafrost Monitoring and Mapping – H. French, room 112 • Active-Layer Monitoring – F. Nelson, room 111 • Soil Mapping – M. McLeod, room 205 • Database Management – B. Csatho, room 317

  4. Breakout Group Discussion Items • Antarctic Permafrost Map • Which areas to be shown? Southern Hemisphere (>46 deg S)? Antarctic region (>60 deg S)? McMurdo Dry Valleys? • Map projection system? Lambert Azimuthal Equal Area? Other? • Map center point? South Pole? Other? • Scale? 1:5 million? 1:10 million? 1:250,000 (McMurdo Dry Valleys)? Other? • Map production? U.S. Geological Survey? Other? • Legend? Permafrost zone (continuous, discontinuous, sporadic, isolated patches, subsea)? Areas of dry permafrost in upper 1 m? Ground-ice form (buried massive ice, ice wedges, rock glaciers, pingos, etc.)? Ground-ice extent (percentage class)? Periglacial features (patterned ground, cryoplanation terraces, etc.)? Surface ice? Location of boreholes? Location of shallow cores? Permafrost temperatures? Permafrost thickness? Location of large subglacial lakes? Active-layer depths? Lithological classes in upper X m? Compilation methods and definitions? Geocryological regions? Principal sources of information? • How can current technology (satellite images, digital raster graphics, aerial photography, digital elevation models, other) be used to assist in preparing a permafrost map? • What should be the next step? • Which persons/organizations should be involved in producing an Antarctic permafrost map? • How will the map production be funded? • What should be the target date for producing a draft of the map?

  5. Antarctic Soils Map • Which areas to be shown? Southern Hemisphere (>46 deg S)? Antarctic region (>60 deg S)? McMurdo Dry Valleys? • Map projection system? Lambert Azimuthal Equal Area? Other? • Map center point? South pole? Other? • Scale? 1:5 million? 1:10 million? 1:250,000 (McMurdo Dry Valleys)? Other? • Map production? U.S. Natural Resources Conservation Service? U.S. Geological Survey? New Zealand Antarctic Institute? Other? • Legend? Soil taxonomic system (USA, World Reference Base, Russian, other, multiple)? Permafrost zone? Active-layer depths? Compilation methods and definitions? Principal sources of information? • Should a soil organic carbon map be prepared? • How can current technology (satellite images, digital raster graphics, aerial photography, digital elevation models, other) be used to assist in preparing a permafrost map? • What should be the next step? • Which persons/organizations should be involved in producing an Antarctic permafrost map? • How will the map production be funded? • What should be the target date for producing a draft of the map?

  6. Antarctic Permafrost Database • Where should database be stored (IPA, Joint Committee on Antarctic Data Management (JCADM), National Snow & Ice Data Center/National Antarctic Data Center (US), International Center for Antarctic Information and Research (NZ), other)? • Which items should be included in the database (permafrost type, occurrence of dry permafrost in upper 1 m, permafrost temperature, permafrost thickness, ground-ice form, active-layer depth, periglacial features, other)? • What should be the next step? • Which persons/organizations should be involved in compiling the Antarctic permafrost database? • What is a good template for the database? • How will the database management be funded? • What should be the target date for producing the database? • Antarctic Soils Database • Where should database be stored (IPA, Joint Committee on Antarctic Data Management (JCADM), National Snow & Ice Data Center/National Antarctic Data Center (US), International Center for Antarctic Information and Research (NZ), other)? • Which items should be included in the database (soil descriptions, analytical soils data, soil maps, other)? • What should be the next step? • Which persons/organizations should be involved in compiling the Antarctic soils database? • What is a good template for the data base? • How will the database management be funded? • What should be the target date for producing the database?

  11. Questions?

  12. Key Points: • Conduct inventory of existing data • Develop model on which map will be based • Display information on map which reflects quality of science • Carefully examine Circum-arctic map of permafrost/ground ice • Legend (parameters) must be constructed for Southern Hemisphere • “A map is a model” (J. Barrett) • Soils and permafrost are closely related • Use team approach to address problems, i.e., identify “drivers” • Climate data will be important for both permafrost and soil maps • Geophysical data for subglacial and subsea permafrost are important and should be shown on the map • Expertise from outside this community will be needed • Develop a “needs statement,” i.e., who is the audience for the map? • Need to determine geographic area for maps, i.e., Southern Hemisphere, Antarctic region (>60 deg S), specific areas of Antarctica • Don’t lose sight of the key goals! • Need to determine base maps for (1) permafrost/ground ice and (2) soils • Determine agencies for archiving data • Access to database? Archive or interactive? Electronic or hard copy? User modification? • Database needs to be flexible for upgrading
