The perpetually frozen soils of the Arctic and boreal regions are thawing at unprecedented rates. It's unclear what this bodes for global warming. 

The process of unfrozen water freezing with decreasing temperature studied by dielectric measurement in the case of an Arctic soil

The measured shrub soil contains up to 90% organic matter and is the first soil of this composition for which the soil dielectric has been characterized, and the process of freezing has been analyzed of unfrozen water contained in the shrub tundra sample.

Global impacts of land degradation

Study commissioned by the Scientific, Technical and Advisory Panel (STAP) of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) to support the development of the new GEF focal area of Land Degradation

Climate Change in New South Wales

This report relates to climate change scenarios based on computer modelling. Models involve simplifications of the real physical processes that are not fully understood. Accordingly, no

Possible role of wetlands, permafrost, and methane hydrates in the methane cycle under future climate change: A review

We have reviewed the available scientific literature on how natural sources and the atmospheric fate of methane may be affected by future climate change. We discuss how processes governing methane

The growing season greenhouse gas balance of a continental tundra site in the Indigirka lowlands, NE Siberia

Abstract. Carbon dioxide and methane fluxes were measured at a tundra site near Chokurdakh, in the lowlands of the Indigirka river in north-east Siberia. This site is one of the few stations on

The sign, magnitude and potential drivers of change in surface water extent in Canadian tundra

The accelerated rate of warming in the Arctic has considerable implications for all components of ecosystem functioning in the High Northern Latitudes. Changes to hydrological cycle in the Arctic are

Global climate change and its impacts on the terrestrial Arctic carbon cycle with special regards to ecosystem components and the greenhouse‐gas balance

The climatic changes on earth may have serious implications for the carbon (C) cycle in the terrestrial Arctic throughout the 21 st century. Arctic vegetation takes up carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) from the

Climate change in New South Wales Part 1 : past climate variability and projected changes in average climate

This report presents results of a project undertaken by CSIRO for the New South Wales Greenhouse Office to assess past climate variability and projected changes in average climate. Information is
