Abstract:

The results of the remote study of small thermokarst lakes using satellite images of BKA and Alos received during summer months 2008–2014 are presented. Researches were carried out at 16 test sites in the continuous permafrost of Western Siberia. At each test site, the number of lakes, their sizes, density of lakes, limnicity of territory were determined and histograms of size distribution of lakes were built. It is shown that empirical size distribution of lakes corresponds to a power law.

Keywords:

permafrost, space images, small thermokarst lakes, Western Siberia
