Global Terrestrial Network for Permafrost (GTN-P)
Entry ID: ggd633

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Global Terrestrial Network for Permafrost (GTN-P) was established in 1999 by the International Permafrost Association to provide long-term field observations of active layer and permafrost thermal state that are required to determine the present permafrost conditions and to detect changes in permafrost stability. The GTN-P contributes to the World Meteorological Organization's Global Climate ... View entire text
