Observed permafrost temperatures from selected boreholes in European mountains
The figure shows trends in observed permafrost temperatures from 10 m (left) and 20 m (right) depth for selected boreholes in European mountains: the sites include the PACE transect and two additional sites in the Swiss Alps(and two in Norway (Dovrefjell and Iskoras).
Temporal coverage: varying lengths of data series.
Data for the Swiss sites are provided by the Swiss Permafrost Monitoring Network (PERMOS), data for the Norwegian sites by the Norwegian Meteorological Institute.
