The product provides modeled mean annual ground temperatures (MAGT) at the top of the permafrost for the Northern Hemisphere at 1 km spatial resolution. Permafrost probability (fraction values from 0 to 1) is assigned to each grid cell with MAGT higher than 0 degree Celsius. Based on its permafrost probability each grid cell is classified as continuous, discontinuous and sporadic permafrost.
The NetCDF files contain resampled data from GeoTiffs to approx. 5, 10 and 25 km spatial resolution. The data contain both metric x and y coordinates in addition to geographic coordinates. Each NetCDF file contains datasets of mean annual ground temperature, permafrost occurrence probability and standard deviation of mean annual ground temperature.
