The International Permafrost Association´s annual publication, Frozen Ground, is now available. It describes a selection of the activities of the International Permafrost Association over the past year. The Country Reports give additional details concerning the great variety of permafrost science and engineering initiatives underway around the globe. We hope that you will enjoy reading about these activities.

We also ask you to update your IPA membership. If you are not already a member, consider joining the International Permafrost Association and to spread the word about this opportunity. Paid individual memberships constitute a small but growing source of revenue for the organization that can be used to enhance its activities.The funding received allows the International Permafrost Association to undertake numerous activities, including financing Action Groups and funding early career researchers to attend permafrost conferences. The reports from Global Terrestrial Network-Permafrost (GTN-P), Permafrost Young Researchers Network (PYRN) and Action Groups in Frozen Ground show the importance of these initiatives and we are grateful for your ongoing membership.

We look forward to seeing you all in June 2016 at the 11th International Conference on Permafrost.
