Permafrost thaw and methane release from Arctic lakes

Friday, February 24, 2017| 9:30-10:30 am, 401 Akasofu- Katey Walter Anthony will present a relatively new discovery that permafrost thaw lakes have a natural process that mitigates greenhouse gas losses, and over the long term can lead to net climate cooling.

Highlight: Study measures methane release from Arctic permafrost

A UAF research project led by IARC’s Katey Walter Anthony has provided the first modern evidence of a landscape-level permafrost carbon feedback, in which thawing permafrost releases ancient carbon as climate-warming greenhouse gases. The study was published today in the journal Nature Geoscience.
