[ Get Data ]

Abstract: This dataset gives ground temperatures from 12 boreholes in the mountains of Northern Norway (Troms and Finnmark). The aim is to get knowledge on the distribution and temperature of permafrost. The dataset is part of the TSP Norway project. The boreholes are: Kistefjell (KI-B-1), depth 24.8m Lavkavagge 1 (LA-B-1), depth 14.0m Lavkavagge 2 (LA-B-2), depth 30.5m Lavkavagge 3 (LA-B-3), depth 15.8m Guolasjavri 1 (GU-B-1), depth 32.3m Guolasjavri 2 (GU-B-2), depth 10.5m Guolasjavri 3 (GU-B-3), depth 10.5m Abojavri 1 (AB-B-1), depth 6.6m Abojavri 2 (AB-B-2), depth 30.3m Iskoras 1 (IS-B-1), depth 10.7m Iskoras 2 (IS-B-2), depth 57.5m Trolltinden (TR-B-1), depth 29.4m
