Detailed Description

Snow blankets vulnerable permafrost at the Alaska Peatland Experiment site near Fairbanks, Alaska. A new study has found liquid water in frozen soils may be a significant driver for advancing permafrost thaw, controlling cold-season carbon emissions, and enhancing the microbial release of carbon prior to permafrost collapse.
