Cryosols
Supporting the International Polar Year, March 2007 to March 2009 (two
years are needed to cover all the seasons in northern and southern
hemispheres), the European Union have published a rather smart 2008
calendar on Northern Cirumpolar Soils (9MB pdf).
Each month is dedicated to a different soil type, for example January covers Cryosols (from the Greek, kraios, meaning cold or ice). A distribution map, centred on the north pole, shows the approximate location of each soil type. In addition, a soil profile and a brief description of the soil are provided.
