Group: Summary

   This data set contains slope ecology parameters from Western Siberia, 
   including morphology, lithology, soil-vegetation cover, depth of thaw, and 
   chemical composition of landslide slopes. The study site comprises a 
   highly-dissected alluvial-lacustrine-marine plain in which a number of 
   hazardous processes operate, such as thermal erosion and landsliding. Active 
   layer detachments were active in August 1989, and this produced 400 new 
   landslides in the area of 10 square km. Field measurements were conducted at 
   each of the landslides, as well as aerial photographs of the larger slides. 
   These data were collected at Circumpolar Active Layer Monitoring (CALM) 
   Program Network Site ID R5.
