Group: Summary

   This data set consists of a classification of the geological environment of 
   Yamal, based on a map of natural complexes of North West Siberia.  52 separate 
   regions were identified, distinguished by landscape and geocryological 
   conditions such as cryolithological structure, ground ice, soil temperature, 
   soil ice content, distribution of cryogenic geological processes, character of 
   vegetation cover, and natural protection of groundwater.     
The data set 
   also includes an assessment of possible future changes in geocryological 
   conditions, such as ground temperature and active layer thickness, under 
   varying disruptions to the land surface (vegetation and snow).
