Acc. to coordinates the borehole is not between 3 lakes which is each 600 m away (as stated in "Disturbance").


MEAN ANNUAL GROUND TEMPERATURE AT OR NEAR DEPTH OF ZERO ANNUAL AMPLITUDE (°C) – report  value for most recent year or 12 month interval -4.05°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[ ] No[x]   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
