Group: Summary

   This data set contains active-layer and permafrost temperatures from Sisimiut, 
   west Greenland, recorded from 18 sensors at depths of 0.25 m, 0.5 m, 0.75 m, 1 
   m, 1.25 m, 1.5 m, 1.75 m, 2 m, 2.5 m, 3 m, 3.5 m, 4 m, 4.5 m, 5 m, 6 m, 7 m, 8 
   m, and 9 m below the surface. Snow depth, snow extent, and surface air 
   temperature were also recorded. Thermometers recorded temperatures once a day 
   from September 1967 to August 1982; however, this data set only contains 
   bi-weekly averages. Data are in tab-delimited ASCII text format and are 
   available via FTP.
