	            The Circumpolar Active-Layer Permafrost System (CAPS) contains over 100 data 
	            sets pertaining to permafrost and frozen ground topics. It also contains 
	            detailed metadata records describing over 100 additional data sets available 
	            at other GGD nodes around the world. Dozens of contributors submitted data 
	            collections representing global sites. This compilation of data and 
	            information products is intended for a broad audience including the scientific 
	            and engineering communities, educators, and policy makers. The data published 
	            on CAPS is available through the Frozen Ground Data Center (FGDC) database.
