2 - Soil, permafrost and geology

2 - Soil, permafrost and geologyThe total frost heave (FH) at each stake was monitored by measuring the difference between the original heigth of 1.2m from the surface and the observed heigth from the surface of each stake at the beginning of each summer.

At each node of the grid was installed also a plot (1x1 m) for the long-term monitoring of vegetation. Every summer the vegetation was monitored at each plot (1x1 m) at each node performing a phytosociological relevés according to the Braun-Blanquet method allowing to provide information on the community structure, coverage, species richness and composition.
