The regional Yedoma records in the Lena Delta and on Bykovsky Peninsula confirm the existence of late Pleistocene tundra-steppe environments in West Beringia about 52 000 years ago.
Paper led by George Tanski showing that carbon and CO2 pathways from coastal erosion in the Canadian Arctic differ greatly for different erosion types.
New study by Siewert et al. shows that subsurface soil properties in permafrost tundra terrain exhibit tremendous spatial variability.
The East Siberian Arctic Shelf holds large amounts of inundated carbon and methane (CH4). Holocene warming, fortified by anthropogenic warming, has caused thawing of the underlying subsea permafrost.
New study presents the development of a risk management framework adapted to the Arctic coastal context.
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.
