New Publication in Nature Communications: High Greenhouse gas emissions from Western Siberian lakes

Permafrost soils store large quantities of frozen carbon which are important for the global climate. As permafrost thaws these soils warm up and release previously frozen carbon, as well as at the same time form new lakes.

Climate change is the strongest around the North and South poles. When the rest of the world gets a temperature increase of 1 degree, one can expect much greater changes in these areas. What happens at the poles doesn’t stay at the poles. Changes in the weather here will affect the entire planet. Meet the researchers who in different ways try to understand what is happening: Michael Tjernström, Stockholm University, Jan Karlsson, Umeå University and Sebastiaan Swart at the University of Gothenburg.
