January 19-21, 2010 a co-operation meeting between CRYOLINK and the project cluster "Sensitivity of mountain permafrost to climate change " (SPCC)  took place in Habkern, Switzerland.

SPCC-CRYOLINK meeting in Habkern, Switzerland

The SPCC includs five closely interlaced projects, initiated to bridge the gap between climate simulations, spatio-temporal surface and subsurface characteristics and the response of landforms to these changes and, hence, increase the understanding of the mountain permafrost system in the European Alps. Thus, there are clear overlaps between CRYOLINK (see aims of the project here) and SPCC. During the meeting participants of the projects presented results and approaches from their study sites, and joint future efforts were discussed, e.g. for the forthcoming Third European Conference on Permafrost in Longyearbyen, Svalbard, in June 2010.
