Cryosol Working Group
CWG – IPA/IUSS
http://igras.geonet.ru/cwg/
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
Arctic and Antarctic Soil Database: Why?
Soil diversity:
S = f (c, p, r, o, t)
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“
CWG next steps
Continue and intensify the exchange during the next different
international meetings:
Madison 17th Nov. 2004, Rm 205
Potsdam 12-16 June 2005
Arkhangelsk, 3-8th August 2005
Philadelphia IUSS, 9-15 July 2006
….oooh, an other Confernce!!!
IV International Conference on Cryopedology
CRYOSOLS:
GENESIS, ECOLOGY AND MANAGEMENT
Arkhangelsk, Russia, August 1-8, 2005
http://igras.geonet.ru/cwg/
It‘s fine here! Why should we go to
Arkhangelsk?
Scientific Programme of Arkhangelsk 2005
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
Let‘s go and learn from Arctic Cryosols!
IV International Conference on Cryopedology

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!
