Microbiome and subducted carbon vulnerability in Arctic permafrost soils

Akasofu 401

Arctic permafrost soils contain about half of the global soil organic C (approx. 1300 Pg). One third of this C is stored in subducted organic matter (cryoOM) by the cryoturbation processes.We here present results from the Arctic project that aimed at identifying the role of microbial functioning for OM decomposition in cryoturbated soils (Siberia, Greenland,…
