Coordinates point to place at 900 m from lake, however, lake supposed to be 250 m from borehole (see "Disturbance"). 


MEAN ANNUAL GROUND TEMPERATURE AT OR NEAR DEPTH OF ZERO ANNUAL AMPLITUDE (°C) – report  value for most recent year or 12 month interval -0.9°C

Depth of zero annual amplitude (or depth of measurement reported above)  (m) 15 m zero amp.



AIR TEMPERATURE AND SNOW COVER THICKNESS/DENSITY MEASUREMENTS AT THE BOREHOLE SITE (indicate frequency of observations): Air temperature: Yes [x] No [ ]    Snow thickness: Yes[x] No[ ]   Density: Yes [x] No[ ]


NAME AND LOCATION OF CLOSEST CLIMATE STATION (latitude, longitude, and distance from borehole, km) – provide (if available) mean monthly air temperature and snow depth of reporting interval for mean annual ground temperature Vorkuta (67°29'N 64°01'E), data for 1946-1999
