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.
New Permafrost Coastal Systems Network (PerCS-Net), a forum for reinvigorated research, knowledge integration, and management of environmental change at the fringes of the Arctic.
At the end of the 4th Takuvik expedition to the Mackenzie Delta, Bennet Juhls (AWI) and I were asked by the Peel River team to repeat water sampling from the creeks along the Dempster Highway between Inuvik and Dawson City.
One of the fundamental goals of conducting science is to be able to communicate it to others. As scientists, we are not always effective communicators, especially when addressing non-peers.
Everything is packed. The truck is fully loaded with our equipment meant for complete autonomy during several days. Bennet and I are gearing up as the temperatures are dropping close to 0oC in the Delta.
Nunataryuk is cooperating with the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) and the Terrestrial Multidisciplinary distributed Observatories for the Study of Arctic Connections (T-MOSAiC) in organizing Nunataryuk-APECS-T-MOSAiC School 2020.
Following the surveys with drones conducted in 2018, the field research this season was done further east, aiming at high quality 3D baseline surveys and data for analysing satellite imagery.
