 The datasets used in the empirical model are: The datasets used in the empirical model are:
-temperature data at altitudes above 1800 m a.s.l. (most relevant zone for permafrost) for the present climate (reference period 1961-90) and for a future climate 2021-2050 (CLM simulation). These data were the starting point to calculate the following parameters: the number of frost days, ice days and freeze-thaw days;  +  * temperature data at altitudes above 1800 m a.s.l.
