Talik: an unfrozen patch of ground over, under, or inside a layer of permafrost. Wind power and the turbulent forces it creates can influence heat, nutrient, and biochemical profiles of ecosystems. [108] For example, wind running over the surface of a lake creates turbulence, mixing the water column and influencing the environmental profile to create thermally layered zones, affecting how fish, algae, and other parts of the aquatic ecosystem are structured. [190] [191] Wind speed and turbulence also influence evapotranspiration rates and energy budgets in plants and animals. [178] [192] Wind speed, temperature and moisture content can vary as winds travel across different land features and elevations.
