Permafrost mapping : a review

published at : A special issue on climate change and periglacial environments

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This review will consider, in particular, the scope and purpose of permafrost maps, underlying philosophical and technical questions, and possible future directions. The principal emphasis is on large-format maps published as sheet maps or atlas maps. Such large-format maps, whether atlas maps or wall maps, are usually published by government agencies or by universities. Terminology follows generally the recommendations of the former Canadian Permafrost Subcommittee and the International Permafrost Association
