Identifying Drivers of Seasonality in Lena River Biogeochemistry and Dissolved Organic Matter Fluxes

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.

Modelling past and future peatland carbon dynamics across the pan-Arctic

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.

Users and programmers of the CryoGrid permafrost model gathered for an intense workshop of coding and programming.

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.

Permafrost Coastal Systems Network (PerCS-Net) launched
