Permafrost Zones and Biome Area for Tundra and Boreal Regions

Figure 11.4


This figure appears in chapter 11 of the Second State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR2): A Sustained Assessment Report report.

Blue areas are permafrost zones, with the legend showing percent of ground underlain by permafrost. Green dots and hashed lines define biome areas and their intersections with permafrost across some, but not all, of the region. Tundra and boreal regions outlined here are larger in area than regions quantified for carbon in this chapter, which focuses specifically on Arctic tundra and boreal forest.
