  • The different climatic conditions determinate the cryogenic asymmetry of the Antarctic Peninsula with respect the continuous permafrost on north-east side and the discontinuous permafrost on the west sector. tierradelfuego.gov.ar

Example sentence(s):
  • 永久凍土はおよそ地球の陸上の20%に広がっており、その規模は気候に応じて変化する。永久凍土の上部には夏の間融けている季節的な凍土が覆っている。これは活動層と呼ばれ、永久凍土と違い植物が生育している。活動層の厚さは年や場所によって変化するが、典型的なものでは0.6-4mの厚さである。 - Wikipedia  
  • 東シベリアの永久凍土の融解がこの数年で急激に進んでいることが、海洋研究開発機構の調査で明らかになった。 同機構が、1997年以来、現地研究機関などと協力し、シベリア東部で降水、地中温度などを観測、ロシア連邦水文気象環境監視局の持つ70年以来の観測データと比較した。 - SciencePortal
