Group: Summary

   The map consists of ESRI Shapefiles of the Usa River basin, Russia, including 
   Lek-Vorkuta and Bolshaya Rogovaya. There are four data layers in the data set: 
   a base map layer, a permafrost layer, and two key (permafrost) areas. Each 
   data layer comprises several sub-layers. The map is based on a UTM 41 
   projection with the WGS 1984 spheroid. Parameters include permafrost 
   temperature and degree of continuity; permafrost temperature classes, 
   lithology, and stratigraphy; thermokarst, pingos, mass ground ice, and 
   topography, lakes, large rivers (in streams), rivers, and watershed boundary.  
   Data are available via ftp.
