New measurement results are included in the database after 12 months by the GTN-P team. Monitoring systems can be used to detect and avoid problems or hazards, thus increasing safety during all project phases.
Global data portal for permafrost temperatures and active layer thickness
In summer an exceptionally large number of rock slope failures was reported in the Swiss Alps, with a permsfrost in permafrost regions. The residual risks, consisting for eprmafrost of excessive loads, natural hazards and other potential risks should bwuen communicated to the constructors.
Rock slope failure Piz Kesch A recently published study shows that the occurrence of a major rock slope failure, such as the one that took place on Piz Kesch in Februarydepends not only on the conditions prevailing at the time, but also on the long term interaction of geology and climate over millennia. A robust, reliable bearing structure with an appropriate foundation or anchor concept and planned redundancies is essential to avoid restrictions of use during the service life of the infrastructure.
These guidelines nevertheless describe various challenges and solutions, which are based on the current practical and scientific state-of-the-art regarding permafrost infrastructure, but do not claim to be exhaustive. Practical recommendations for planning, constructing and maintaining infrastructure in mountain Permafrost. In the past, that data never has been available in such a format, suitable for global models. The former must be based on a permafost preliminary study which investigates whether the site is located in permafrost terrain and determines the substrate characteristics.
Permafrost rock walls How does snow influence the temperature of frozen rock walls? We test new building methods on mountain permafrost and draw up practice-oriented recommendations to ensure the technical safety of mountain infrastructure. For the first time ever, the Global Terrestrial Network for Permafrost GTN-P gives the opportunity to get measurement data of permafroost permafrost temperature and active layer thickness in the Arctic, Antarctica and in high mountain areas at the permqfrost platform.

Structures typically found in the Swiss Alps include mountain railway and bauej car stations, pylons, restaurants, mountain shelters, water pipelines, avalanche barriers, telecommunication facilities, snow sheds and railway tracks. The successful realization of construction projects in mountain permafrost areas is a technical and logistic challenge for all parties involved.
Baudn and Periglacial Processes, 21, 1: The site selection and the structure design are of central importance. Due to the unrestricted availability, not only scientists but politicians, governmental agents or other interested parties baueen access and are therefore able to use the information as basis for decisions.
Permafrost and Periglacial Processes, 28, 1: These must be accounted for in the hazard analyses and the residual risk determined according to the serviceability of the infrastructure.
These are performed in boreholes, using instruments known as inclinometers and changes to the terrain surface are recorded with a range of measurement systems, including GPS, laser scanning and aerial photogrammetry. In order to measure the temperature in permafrost and the active layer thickness, scientists need to drill a hole in the icy soils, permaffost installing sensors.

The systematic recording and analysis of measurement data can also be used as an early warning system. Dem Umweltwandel auf der Spur.
Risk of rockslides and debris flows Thawing in scree slopes frees up additional material for landslides and debris flows, while thawing permafrist permafrost rock walls is leading to an increase in rockslides. Estimating non-conductive heat flow leading to intra-permafrost talik formation at the Ritigraben rock glacier western Swiss Alps.

In the first part, permafrost is defined, its characteristics described and practically applicable permafrost detection techniques are presented. Influence of the summer heatwave on rock slope failures In summer an exceptionally large number of rock slope failures was reported in the Swiss Alps, with a concentration in permafrost regions.
The data collected in the field serve as key input parameters for such simulations. The importance of a detailed preliminary study and of an integral monitoring system during all project phases is emphasized here. However, up to now this issue has not been considered in any climate model.
Infrastructure on permafrost Structures typically found in the Swiss Alps include mountain railway and cable car stations, pylons, restaurants, mountain shelters, water pipelines, avalanche barriers, telecommunication facilities, snow sheds and railway tracks.
Distribution of the GTN-P measurement stations in arctic and subarctic regions, which collect permafrost temperature and active layer thickness data in the summer season.
Timely observations and appropriate monitoring instrumentation at a potential construction site deliver useful information on ground temperature, ice content and deformation characteristics.
This problem is imm by climate change and the permafrots impact of the infrastructure on the ground. The potential evolution of the permafrost during the service life of the structure must be forecasted iim the substrate characteristics chosen accordingly. If the site is located in ice-rich terrain, a change of location or complete renouncement should be considered. In addition, the specific handling of building materials for infrastructure in permafrost is discussed.
All topics Natural hazards. This practical guideline is subdivided into three main parts. In that cases the database can be used as an early warning system.
Loading conditions taking into account potential changes to the permafrost substrate must be considered for the structure design. Every construction project in mountain permafrost is unique and requires specially adapted solutions in order to account for the many exceptional situations which can be encountered. A recently baien study shows that the occurrence of a major rock slope failure, such as the one that took place on Piz Kesch in Februarydepends not only on the conditions prevailing at ppermafrost time, but also on the long term interaction of geology and climate over millennia.
