Modeling and Mapping Subgroup

(Modelling Spatial Dynamics of Permafrost at Diverse Scales)


  • Stephan Gruber, Switzerland
  • Nikolay Shiklomanov, U.S.A.

Statement of Goals:

  • Develop and evaluate theoretical and semantic aspects of modeling permafrost distribution under climatic change
  • Emphasize scale (space, time, depth) and the treatment of sub-scale effects in models, model validation and map products, both in lowland and mountain environments


Meetings will be held as noted above, with additional working meetings scheduled as opportunities present themselves
