The first ever pan-arctic satellite-based record of expanding human impact in permafrost coasts

Newly accepted paper introduces the first pan-arctic satellite-based record of expanding infrastructure and anthropogenic impacts along all permafrost affected coasts.

A framework for studying risks from permafrost thaw

New study presents the development of a risk management framework adapted to the Arctic coastal context.

Population living on permafrost in the Arctic

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).

Permafrost and the risk of anthrax transmission

A recent outbreak of anthrax disease, severely affecting reindeer herds in Siberia, has been reportedly associated topermafrost thaw.

The perception of permafrost thaw in the Sakha Republic (Russia): Narratives, culture and risk in the face of climate change

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.

New map shows extent of permafrost in Northern Hemisphere

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.

Erosion of permafrost coasts in the Arctic could vent major amounts of CO2

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 and highlighted in EOS Research Spotlights.

Arctic socio-economic Atlas by Nordregio

As part of Nunataryuk’s research, this working paper examines the environmental challenges related to permafrost by combining geographical data with demographic data in order to describe coastal and inland settlements.

Bubbling under the Arctic Seabed

Permafrost under the Arctic seabed is more widespread than previously thought, and is mostly warming, a new study finds.

Massive Reserves of Mercury Hidden in Permafrost

WP1 coordinator Dr. Gustaf Hugelius from Stockholm University is one of the co-authors of the new study, which has discovered that climate change caused permafrost thaw has major implications for the global mercury (Hg) cycle.
