Abstract

To try to characterize the permafrost full thickness and determining its relationship with the regional hydrology, a seismic experiment in the Svalbard archipelago was performed during spring 2014, within the Italy-Norway project IMPERVIA. The test site is in the Adventdalen valley, near Longyearbyen, around the Innerhytta (or Innerhytte) Pingo, a well-known giant pingo with a characteristic icefall. IMPERVIA project seismic experiment through near-surface seismic methods, surface wave information, and tomographic inversion of both reflected and refracted arrivals is aimed to study the pingo structure and to contribute to distinguish between massive-ice and iced-bedrock response.
