Lumi-, routa- ja lämpöolot eri tavoin muokatussa metsämaassa Kuusamossa.The effect of site preparation on snow, soil frost and temperature conditions at a site near Kuusamo.
The winter 1986–87 was unusually cold; the snow cover remained thin and consequently the soil froze to a considerable depth. In spite of the severe frost, the lowest temperatures measured at the ground surface was -10.3°C and in the soil at the depth of 10 cm -5.8°C. The temperature sum of the following summer was unusually small and the soil frost melted more slowly than usual. The winter frosts did not have a decisive influence on the survival of planted seedlings.
