Maps of Geocryological Regions and Classifications in China, Version 1

Version 1 eng; usa
  • Abstract
    This data set includes digital versions of 'The Map of Geocryological Regionalization and Classification in China' from Geocryology in China by Y. Zhou, D. Guo, G. Qiu, G. Cheng, and S. Li. Included are ESRI Shapefiles of meterological stations, permafrost regions, and classification of frozen ground, and binary arrays of 25 km EASE-Gridded permafrost regions and classifications. The maps delineate three major geographic areas divided into regions and subregions based on geographic and climatic conditions affecting the formation and spatial variability of permafrost and frozen ground. The maps also illustrate eight land classifications based on permafrost coverage and seasonal frozen ground depth. Station data include some information on air temperature, active layer thaw depth, and seasonal frozen ground depth. Data are available via ftp.
