The monitoring network PERMOS operates two types of sites: temperature sites, where thermal conditions of the subsurface are monitored, and kinematics sites, where permafrost creep is observed.

(I) Temperature Sites

(II) Kinematics Sites

One or more of 10 sites are annually photographed from the air in black & white and infrared. This maintains an important data base for photogrammetrical analyses of rockglacier kinematics as well for the documentation of geomorphological, hydrological, and biological changes in periglacial areas. Terrestrial surveys are undertaken at 17 rock glaciers at 14 sites in order to measure surface displacement.
