AbstractThis translation is the third arranged by the Permafrost Subcommittee of the Associate Committee on Soil and Snow Mechanics of the National Research Council of the Russian permafrost publication, "Principles of Geocryology". The first section of this translation of Chapter VII by I.Ya. Baranov discusses the global distribution, with emphasis on the U.S.S.R., of seasonally frozen ground. The largest portion of the text deals with the distribution of permafrost throughout the world. It includes information on the areal extent, thickness and temperature of permafrost, and variations in these characteristics from one physical region to another.
