Permafrost Distribution of the circum-Arctic (2000-2015)

Permafrost Distribution of the circum-Arctic (2000-2015)

Firstly, the freeze thaw index is calculated by using the resampled crunep data, and then the permafrost area of circum-Arctic is predicted by the frozen number model after snow depth correction. The simulated pan Arctic permafrost area from 2000 to 2015 is 19.96 × 106 km2。 Places inconsistent with the distribution of Pan Arctic permafrost provided by the existing international snow and Ice Data Center are mainly located in island permafrost areas.

File naming and required software

The area distribution of permafrost is in TIFF format. If you want to display it with an illustration, you can open it with ArcGIS.
