    Probability of Permafrost
    Authors: Bonnaventure, P.P. and A.G. Lewkowicz (2012)

    The permafrost probability model for the southern Yukon and northern British Columbia is a interpolative combination of seven local high-resolution empirical-statistical models (30 x 30 m grid cells), each developed by using the measured temperature at the bottom of the snowpack (BTS) in winter and by verification of frozen-ground in summer.

    The seven local models were blended to generate a map of permafrost probability over an area of almost 500 000 km2 between 59°N and 65°N. The result is largely similar to previous permafrost maps with an average permafrost probability of 58% for the region as a whole.

    The model results are presented in two ways, the first uses traditional classifications into permafrost zones, and the second presents the raw results of the probability of permafrost.
