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).
You can now download the new permafrost extent map as a foldable Dymaxion map.
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 Updates from the Lena River amid the global pandemic.
New story about Nunataryuk´s communication and dissemination efforts. "These cartoons add the cool factor to permafrost science - A multimedia science communication project combines art, game-playing, and augmented reality"
Once released, organic carbon can be degraded and emitted as greenhouse gas to the atmosphere, or it can be stored away in marine sediments.
Anaerobic oxidation of methane acts as an efficient barrier for upward migrating dissolved methane in East Siberian Arctic Shelf sediments.
The ongoing pandemic challenges global societies. Nunataryuk scientists of the University Ca'Foscari in Venice have been analysing and modelling the COVID-19 outbreak and spreading trends in Italy. They have used similar epidemiological models for a study within Nunataryuk to predict anthrax disease in Arctic regions.
New Paper! Arctic river monitoring is necessary to observe changes in the mobilization of dissolved organic matter (DOM) from permafrost. The Lena River is the second largest Arctic river and 71% of its catchment is continuous permafrost.
New modelling study: northern peatlands on average will continue to function as carbon sinks in different climate scenarios, but their sink capacity would be substantially reduced under a high warming scenario after 2050.
The APECS-Nunataryuk-T-MOSAiC School had to be CANCELLED due to the current COVID-19 situation worldwide and the uncertainty that comes with it for global travel in the coming months.
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.
Members of PeCaBeau (Permafrost Carbon on the Beaufort Shelf) travelled to Québec City in Canada to take part in a two-day planning workshop held by Amundsen Science.
