Swiss Permafrost Monitoring Network
PERMOS has evolved over more than 20 years since its start and still does. The network and its collaborators are active in climate monitoring and permafrost research, both nationally and internationally. Check out our most recent activities below!
Swiss Permafrost Bulletin 2022
How did the snow-poor winter and the hot summer 2022 affect the permafrost in the Swiss Alps?
Swiss Cryosphere Report 2022
Read about the effect of the extreme year 2022 on snow, glaciers and permafrost in the Swiss Alps on the website of the SAC-CAS (in dt./frz.)!
A new project to study rock glacier in Switzerland and their evolution at multiple spatio-temporal scales.
WSL project on «Unlocking ground for new life and release of old soil carbon, pollutants and pathogens». Check our project page!
Permafrost in the Swiss Alps after Summer 2022

Swiss Permafrost Bulletin 2021
Near-surface temperatures and rock glacier velocities decreased during the hydrological year 2021, permafrost warming continued at depth.
Permafrost from space
The Permafrost Climate Change Initiative (CCI) by ESA derives global maps of permafrost temperature and active layer thickness from satellite images.
International Database of Geoelectrical Surveys on Permafrost
This IPA Action Group brings together the international geoelectrical permafrost measurements to build up an international database.
Rock glacier inventories and kinematics

What if you could help?
Joint project with GLAMOS and MountaiNow to explore the potential of crowd sourcing information for cryosphere monitoring.
Global permafrost monitoring
PERMOS actively contributes to GTN-P – the Global Terrestrial Network for Permafrost. The staff of the PERMOS Office is active in the Steering…
