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.
DOWNLOADING DATA VIA FTP
Data can be downloaded through a Web browser or command line via FTP. When using a Web browser, the FTP link first directs you to an Optional Registration Form that if filled out, will allow you to receive notifications about updates or processing changes related to that specific data set. After completing the Optional Registration Form, the FTP directory becomes available. For additional help downloading data through an FTP client, go to the How to access data using an FTP client support page.
