Abstract

In areas with under 50 cm snow cover in winter, the permafrost zones can be defined by freezing indices and thawing indices. The relationship works for Norway, Spitsbergen, Canada and Mongolia, and since these include a very wide range of thermal environments, it is possible to trace the thermal ranges of the various active periglacial landforms. Relationships between zonal permafrost landforms and permafrost zones are emphasized.
