Global distribution of permafrost: Dymaxion map
This Dymaxion map shows land and subsea permafrost. A Dymaxion or Fuller map is a projection of a world map onto the surface of an icosahedron, which can be presented in two dimensions and folded into the shape of a globe. The map was produced in 2020 as part of the Nunataryuk research project.
The Nunataryuk project aims to assess permafrost thaw along Arctic coastlines, study how it contributes to climate change, understand its impacts on indigenous communities and other people, and develop mitigation and adaptation strategies. The project brings together world-leading specialists in natural science and socio-economics and connects them with stakeholders from around the Arctic coast. Nunataryuk is an EU-funded Horizon 2020 project coordinated by the Alfred Wegener Institute in Potsdam, Germany.
