Frontier Scientists - Permafrost Videos

Main Content Inline SmallFairbanks, Alaska,  January 31, 2012--- Permafrost is an underground phenomena but three new videos, with beautiful footage and photos, allow you to see permafrost with your own eyes. 

University of Alaska-Fairbanks scientists Vladimir Romanovsky, Sergey Marchenko, and Ronald Daanen describe permafrost in videos “It’s a Bore Hole”, “The Permafrost Tilted House” and“Permafrost Patterns”

Vista Data Vision software and web interface

Recently the Permafrost Laboratory has purchased a software package from Vista Engineering, Vista Data Vision.  This software will help us organize our data into a MySQL database while at the same time providing a web interface to view and interact with the data.  At first we will be adding only those sites with real-time data to the database but soon we hope to also have offline sites and archived historical data avaible.  You can access the Vista Data Vision web interface here
