Short summary
Based on the current situation of permafrost modeling in the Qinghai–Tibet Plateau (QTP), a software PIC was developed to evaluate the temporal–spatial change trends of permafrost, which allows us to automatically compute permafrost indices with daily weather and atmospheric forcing datasets. The main features include computing, visualization, and statistics. The software will serve engineering applications and can be used to assess the impact of climate change on permafrost over the QTP.
