Researchers show that permafrost at high elevations is more vulnerable than Arctic permafrost
Permafrost has been found to act as a barrier to radon, reducing surface radiation to a tenth of background levels
As our planet warms, what life will survive and thrive?
A new study of permafrost has found that the ice wedges forming the prevalent honeycomb pattern across the tundra appear to be melting rapidly across the Arctic
Estimates put the amount of carbon stored in soils of the permafrost region to be almost twice the amount present in the atmosphere
Berkeley Lab research could lead to a better understanding of the Arctic ecosystem’s impact on the planet's climate.
