Abstract The Bibliography on Cold Regions Science and Technology has covered approximately 22,000 publications on permafrost and contains an additional 6000 references to the related topic of frozen ground. Permafrost publications are distributed throughout the global scientific literature and are found in peer-reviewed journals, government reports, theses/dissertations, and conference publications. Almost half of the permafrost literature is found in conference proceedings. Coverage of master's theses and doctoral dissertations in the Bibliography is limited to a total of two hundred, primarily from U.S. and Canadian institutions. As geographic distribution of permafrost is concentrated in the polar and high-altitude regions of the world, it is no surprise that 9000 publications have been identified in the Russian language. The rest of the literature is published around the globe, including Europe. Canada, the United States, China, and Japan in the north, and Argentina in the south.
