Cryosols, as the World Reference Base for Soil Resources defines them, or Gelisols, as in Soil Taxonomy, are soils of the permafrost regions of the world. These regions are at high latitudes and also at high elevations. They cover approximately 25% of the world's surface and, in countries such as Canada, include up to 40% of the soils. Permafrost creates such unique conditions that the permafrost-affected soils have different physical, biological, and chemical properties than other soils.
