[{"title":"Ground temperature, thaw depth and snow depth in a permafrost peatland in Tavvavuoma, northern Sweden","summary":"This dataset contains information on ground temperature, late season thaw depth and snow depth variability within a permafrost peatland in northern Sweden. The ground temperature data is from 2007 or 2008, the thaw depth data is from 2010\u2060\u200a\u2013\u200a\u20602012 and the snow depth data is from 2010\u2060\u200a\u2013\u200a\u20602013.\r\n\r\nThe aims of the study behind this dataset were to increase our knowledge of small-scale spatial ground thermal variability within subarctic peat plateau landscapes, and to discuss drivers of ground thermal regimes in different landscape units.","citations":"Sannel ABK (2020) Ground temperature and snow depth variability within a subarctic peat plateau landscape.
