Group: Summary

   This data set contains modeled active-layer depth (cm) from 50 deg N to 80 deg 
   N, and 60 deg E to 160 deg E, Russia. Depth values are calculated from a model 
   of current climate that assumes a complex surface with inhomogenous vegetation 
   and soil texture, and from a model of projected climate for the year 2050 that 
   assumes uniform vegetation and soil. Tab-delimited ASCII text files contain 
   active-layer depth values (cm) with corresponding latitudes and longitudes in 
   decimal degrees. Maps of active-layer depth (cm) are in GIF image format. Data 
   are available via FTP.
