Supplement to: King, Lorenz; Seppälä, Matti (1987): Permafrost thickness and distribution in Finnish Lapland - results of geoelectrical soundings. Polarforschung, 57(3), 127-147, hdl:10013/epic.29588.d001
Geoelectrical soundings were carried out in 29 different places in order to find permafrost and to measure its thickness. In most places above timber Iine a permafrost thickness of 10-50 m was recorded. Permafrost was found at sites with thin snow cover during winter. Here, deflation phenomena on the summits of fjells indicate the occurence of permafrost, Vegetation type might be a good indicator of permafrost, too. It seems obvious that permafrost exists extensively on fjell summits of northern Finland.
