Biome Description

The tundra biome is a vast, treeless region found in the northernmost parts of the world, including the Arctic regions of North America, Europe, and Asia. It is characterized by a cold and harsh climate with low temperatures, short growing seasons, and high winds. The tundra is covered in snow and ice for much of the year, with permafrost permanently frozen ground beneath the surface. Vegetation in the tundra consists mainly of low-growing plants, such as mosses, lichens, and shrubs, adapted to the harsh conditions. Animals such as polar bears, reindeer, and arctic foxes are well adapted to the tundra's extreme conditions, while migratory birds and insects flock to the region during the brief summer months when the sun never sets.

Building the Atlas

We launched the Agrivoltaic Atlas on April 12, 2023 for the AgriVoltaics 2023 conference in Daegu, South Korea. We launch with the goal of demonstrating the idea and gathering interest from partners around the world to contribute. If you would like to contribute, contact findme@kailepley.com.
