The regional distribution of mountain permafrost in Iceland

Abstract

A regional map of permafrost distribution in Iceland was developed based on meteorological data. The regional model was calibrated with ground surface temperature data and tested using ground temperature data from 4 shallow boreholes and a rock glacier inventory. The results indicate widespread mountain permafrost at elevations above 800-900 m a.s.l. in northern and eastern Iceland
