This new study by Justine Ramage et al. is the first demographic study assessing the population living on permafrost and the impact of permafrost thaw on the population living in the Arctic Circumpolar Permafrost Region (ACPR)
Arctic regions are currently undergoing unprecedented climatic and socio-environmental changes. Both scientific research and the observations and knowledge of Arctic residents provide detailed information about the multiplicity of transformations.
A new map, produced as part of the Nunataryuk project, gives an updated picture of the extent of permafrost in the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions, both on land and offshore.
Potentially large amounts of carbon dioxide are being produced by eroding permafrost coastlines in the Arctic, according to a new Nunataryuk paper published in Geophysical Research Letters.
Permafrost under the Arctic seabed is more widespread than previously thought, and is mostly warming, a new study finds.
The Atlas of Population, Society and Economy in the Arctic provides an in-depth overview of the changes that are affecting populations in the circumpolar North.
WP1 coordinator Dr. Gustaf Hugelius from Stockholm University is one of the co-authors of the new study, which has discovered massive reserves of Mercury hidden in permafrost.
