Group: Summary

   This data set includes air and soil temperatures from the East Andean Range. 
   The goals of the project were 1) to understand air and ground temperature 
   variations as a function of elevation in seasonally frozen ground (below 3000 
   m) and in permafrost (above 3000 m) and to determine the cause of such 
   variations; 2) to monitor gelifluction and rock glaciers; 3) to measure 
   retreat of snow patches and mountain lakes; and 4) to compare the observed 
   variations with those in other permafrost mountain regions. Air temperature 
   and ground temperature (down to 5 m) were recorded continuously beginning in 
   1995.
