Goals of the Cryosol Working Group for 2004-2008

  • To develop a Circumpolar Soil Carbon Database that can be used to improve our understanding of soil carbon distribution and dynamics in permafrost-affected soils.
  • To develop an Arctic and Antarctic Soil Databases to enhance the classification and distribution of permafrost soils.
  • To evaluate soil carbon dynamics, sink and sources in cold environments (at high latitudes and altitudes).
  • To investigate the effect of global change on the genesis and properties of soils with permafrost.
  • To cooperate with other IPA and IUSS working groups and to supply them with the data on soil temperature and other soil properties

Contribution of Cryosol Working Group

CWG is an open platform to discuss and workout soil related questions in Antarctic and Arctic:

  • to database: soil parameter set
  • to data quality: criteria for validation
  • to data status quo/ monitoring: aggregating existing soil data
  • to future data collection /monitoring: prepare a manual for field work

„Manual for Minimum / Maximum Soil Data Set“

Thematic sessions :

  • Genesis, classification and terminology of Cryosols
  • Soil databases and mapping of Cryosols in Arctic and Antarctic
  • Paleocryosols as indicators of the past environments and climate change
  • Carbon pools and functions of Cryosols for the polar ecosystems
  • Contamination of soil landscapes in the north
  • Cryosols' features and regimes: Change due to different management

Round table:

  • Approaches to environmentally oriented interpretations of soil data in polar regions

Investigation using δ13C-SOM-analysis could help to predict environment and climate change on the sensitive Arctic and Antarctic ecosystems.

…. more diversity in our system!
