AbstractDuring the International Polar Year (IPY) the International Permafrost Association (IPA) coordinated the acquisition of standardized permafrost temperatures data (snapshot) under the Thermal State of Permafrost (TSP) Project. The current network consists of more than 860 boreholes in both hemispheres with more than 25 participating countries. The vast majority of sites are equipped for long-term permafrost temperature observations. A borehole inventory including mean annual ground temperatures for 600 boreholes (snapshot) is available online.
