DescriptionInventory of glaciers giving data on their area, perimeter and shape. This data has been collected by the World Glacier Monitoring Service and was released as part of a larger permafrost dataset (http://hdl.handle.net/10672/299). The derivation of the dataset is described in this publication <http://www.the-cryosphere.net/6/221/>. The derivation of the dataset is described in this publication <http://www.the-cryosphere.net/6/221/>. In it, issues of uncertainty and heterogeneity are discussed in detail. These are especially important when using such data for validating other models. Updated statistics for global/national permafrost areas as well as plots detailing the nature of permafrost areas in terms of latitude, elevation, heterogeneity and terrain ruggedness are available and include an estimation of uncertainty.
