Northern Circumpolar Soil calendar 2008

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.
