Circumpolar Active-Layer Permafrost System (CAPS), Version 1

Version 1 eng; usa
  • Abstract
    The Circumpolar Active-Layer Permafrost System (CAPS) contains over 100 data sets pertaining to permafrost and frozen ground topics. It also contains detailed metadata records describing over 100 additional data sets available at other Global Geocryological Data (GGD) nodes around the world. Dozens of contributors submitted data collections representing global sites. This compilation of data and information products is intended for a broad audience including the scientific and engineering communities, educators, and policy makers. The data published on CAPS is available through the Frozen Ground Data Center (FGDC) database.
