Title: Slope Ecology and Active Layer in the Central Yamal Peninsula, West Siberia, Russia

Description:

Abstract:

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.
