New research by researchers from the The Geophysical Institute of the University of Alaska Fairbanks has found that further areas of the year-round, non-frozen soil will expand throughout the interior and Northwest of Alaska and cause further increases due to climate change.
The researchers said the propagation of tipage quantities of solid, frozen soil within permafrost regions has significant effects on the movement of carbon between organisms, minerals and the atmosphere.
The Taleban will also influence water transport of materials like nutrients and facilitate thermo-karsts, lands submerged by permafrost thawing.
Their results were published today in the journal Nature Geoscience.
Louise Farquharson, an assistant professor emeritus, compiled the paper.
