Summary

This dataset represents the predicted current distribution of permafrost based on results from a frost-index-based model, global gridded air temperature, and precipitation. Three classes are used to describe permafrost type: (1) sporadic, (6) continuous, and (7) discontinuous. Details about how this dataset was created can be found in Anisimov and Nelson (1996, 1997).
