Abstract

Although progressive improvements in data availability are apparent through time, many of the differences between maps are attributable to a lack of explicit mapping criteria, to ambiguous or conflicting definitions of permafrost " continuity " and to the widely recognized lack of observational data. The term " continuous permafrost " should be used only with reference to small (e.g., subcontinental) geographic scales, in which zonal tendencies are apparent
