This course was supported through grants from the US National Science Foundation Arctic System Sciences Program, Collaborative Awards ARC-.0806341, 0806399, 0806329, 0806254, 0806465, 0806451, 0806271, and 0806394. The information presented was based on results from research from the NSF Arctic System Science Thermakarst Project and may not reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.
The course is also endorsed by the International Permafrost Association (IPA). The IPA, founded in 1983, has as its objectives to foster the disseminationIPA of knowledge concerning permafrost and to promote cooperation among persons and national or international organizations engaged in scientific investigation and engineering work on permafrost.
