Mean annual surface temperature based on data from Envisat’s Advanced Along Track Scanning Radiometer from 2005 to 2009. The rate at which permafrost evolves can be determined by studying its thermal regime, which is dependent on surface temperature. Surface temperature is a key parameter because it governs the surface energy budget and the thickness of the permafrost active layer.
