PERMOS observes permafrost conditions at 27 sites located between 2200 and 3500 m asl. in the Swiss Alps, which represent typical permafrost landforms: rock glaciers, debris and bedrock slopes or rock crests. Most of the sites were instrumented in the scope of permafrost research projects. The sites and their instrumentation are maintained by the Partner Institutions.
