Permafrost is a term used to describe the thermal condition of earth materials, such as soil and rock, when their temperature remains below 0 degrees Celsius continuously for more than one year. The map also shows localities where pingos occur. Pingos are material uplifted by an ice core, creating symmetrical hills that may be up to 0.4 kilometers in diameter. 1973-01-07 2017-05-26 Natural Resources Canada NRCan.geogratis-geogratis.RNCan@canada.ca Nature and Environmentglaciersice capspermafrosttemperature Download PDF English Source Identification file through HTTPPDF http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_4_ed/eng/doc/Atlas4thEditionSourcesEn.pdf Download the English JPG through HTTPJPG http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_4_ed/eng/environment/land/011_12.jpg Download the English PDF through HTTPPDF http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_4_ed/eng/environment/land/011_12.pdf Download PDF French Source Identification file through HTTPPDF http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_4_ed/fra/doc/Atlas4thEditionSourcesFr.pdf Download the French JPG through HTTPJPG http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_4_ed/fra/environment/land/011_12.jpg Download the French PDF through HTTPPDF http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_4_ed/fra/environment/land/011_12.pdf
