CCN2 on the “Rock glacier kinematics as new associated parameter of ECV permafrost” with the Norwegian Research Centre NORCE and the University Centre in Svalbard UNIS as additional partners to Gamma, B.GEOS, GUIO and UNIFR was started.

To complement CCN1, this option addresses the need for additional regional cases in cooperation with dedicated users in characterising mountain permafrost – and rockglaciers as one important element of mountain permafrost in particular – as local indicator for climate change and direct impact on the society in mountainous area. Study areas will be in at least six different climatic regions, including Switzerland, Norway and Svalbard.
