Summary/Abstract

Mountain permafrost temperatures measured in 23 boreholes ranging in altitude from 1100 to 2280 meters are reported in three tables presented on the CAPS CD-ROM version 1.0, June 1998. Tables include site number, latitude, longitude, [grounds, in depth], nd site description, including soil type. For 7 boreholes, tables of changes in temperature, depth of permafrost bottom, and temperature gradient over a 10-year period are included.
