Influence of urbanization on permafrost (Lin Chen)

November 14, 2016 in post

The urbanization has significant influence on permafrost degradation. The degradation of permafrost in the urban area in turn has been affecting the residents’ lives, such as water supply and stability of buildings. In 2008, ground penetration radar (GPR) was conducted by Lin Chen and his teammates to investigate the influence of urbanization on permafrost.
