The maps of Active Layer Thickness Monitoring sites display the location of all monitoring sites contained in the GTN-P database. The maps distinguish between different types of monitoring methods:
This map shows the Arctic Active Layer Thickness Monitoring sites contained in the GTN-P Database.
This map shows the Antarctic Active Layer Thickness Monitoring sites contained in the GTN-P Database.
By clicking on the single points, an information window opens displaying active layer measuring site name, code, site name, permafrost zone, and spatial location. The link "Responsible person" opens a window in Google Earth displaying the citation of the specific site including responsible person(s), institution, and contact information. The link "More information" opens a window in Google Earth which is directly linked to the GTN-P database displaying the whole information of the site and appendent data.
The shapefiles can be opened in (Q)GIS and show the distribution of all active layer measuring sites contained in the database in the WGS 84 projection. The attribute table contains information on country, latitude and longitude.
Contains information on all active layer measuring sites (name, ID, country, permafrost zone, spatial location, and responsible person).
