Short summary
This study presents the thermal state and recent evolution of permafrost at Cime Bianche. The analysis reveals that (i) spatial variability of MAGST is greater than its interannual variability and is controlled by snow duration and air temperature during the snow-free period, (ii) the ALT has a pronounced spatial variability caused by a different subsurface ice and water content, and (iii) permafrost is warming at significant rates below 8m of depth.
This study presents the thermal state and recent evolution of permafrost at Cime Bianche. The...
