AbstractUnderstanding the interaction between the soil thermal-water regime and variations in vegetation cover is a key issue in land surface research and in predicting the responses of alpine ecosystems in permafrost regions to climate changes. Alpine meadows and swamps were selected to investigate the effects of changes in the soil moisture and temperature dynamics in the active layer. The differences in soil temperature and moisture in areas with different amounts of vegetation coverage were evaluated using active layer soil water and temperature indexes from a field investigation that was conducted from the years 2005-2009. Declines in vegetation cover in alpine meadows resulted in an increase in the soil-thawing temperature and moisture, a decrease in the soil-freezing temperature and moisture, and an advance in the onset of seasonal changes in the soil temperature. Changes in the vegetation cover had distinct effects on soil thermal and water dynamics in alpine swamps and meadows. The annual variations of active soil temperature and moisture dynamics were controlled by the synergic influences of climate and vegetation cover changes. We found that as the vegetation cover decreased, the sensitivity of the soil to climate changes increased with greater shifts in the annual soil temperature and water dynamics. An empirical Boltzmann formula for the soil water-temperature relationship was identified to understand how vegetation cover inhibited or drove permafrost changes by varying the soil water-thermal coupling cycle. The results confirmed that vegetation cover was one of the most important factors that control the soil water and thermal cycles in permafrost. The degradation of vegetation could accelerate the effects of climate change on the permafrost environment. (C) 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
