Glaciers and Permafrost
Melting Glaciers and Warming Mountain Rivers May Increase Carbon Emissions
Identification of Regions in Alaska Susceptible to Landscape Deformation Due to “Climate Priming” of Permafrost Soils
As air temperatures rise, increased rates of glacier melt and permafrost thaw may impact the hydrology, ecology, infrastructure, and communities in Alaska. Learn about how CASC scientists are seeking to understand permafrost thaw and glacier melt characteristics and dynamics, and what these changes will mean for human communities and ecosystems, to support management and planning efforts.
