Dataset of the temperatures of the surface air and the seasonal thawed layer during the period from August 2016 to June 2017 in the south of the Central Siberian permafrost zone
The data were recorded using a logger on an instrumental site inside a natural–territorial complex with ice rocks close-lying to surface. The site was located 200 meters from the Stolbovaya R. bed. Logger sensors automatically recorded surface air temperatures at height of about 2 m above the surface and at a depth of 50 cm in the lower part of the seasonal thawed layer, on the border with ice rocks. The data were recorded from August 2016 to June 2017. From September 16 to May 29, surface air temperature measurements were not performed for technical reasons. It is possible to restore these values using the data of the nearest weather station located in Kuzmovka (30 km from the location of the logger).
