“Astounding” find in Russia and Alaska: some Arctic ground isn’t freezing—in winter. This ground is what insulates carbon-rich permafrost below from heat at the surface—permafrost that holds its own vast stores of greenhouse gases. My story
How "perma" is the permafrost? Threshold breached for heavy snowfall, floods too.

For the first time in memory, ground that insulates deep Arctic permafrost simply did not freeze in winter #siberia #climate #ActOnClimate

Permafrost, an enormous store of especially potent greenhouse gas, may be thawing far faster than scientists anticipated
Impermafrost. Expectathaw. Likelymelt. Formerfroze. Perge-less-sol. Frost.

Today, a new global study confirmed that permafrost is thawing quickly across much of the world, with the greatest warming seen in parts of Siberia

So many reasons to be learning about #permafrost - a great article for those of you following along on my #PolarTREC adventure
“Some Arctic Ground No Longer Freezing—Even in Winter: New data from two Arctic sites suggest some surface layers are no longer freezing. If that continues, greenhouse gases from permafrost could accelerate climate change.”

Worrying signs above the Arctic Circle that widespread permafrost melt, and corresponding huge carbon releases, could happen a lot sooner than models predict: #climatechange
I can't stress enough that changes in #Arctic climate are already having impacts to society/biodiversity. Some stories in 2018: + + + + Animation shows evolution of September sea ice
Btw, no one is talking about the greenhouse gases from the Arctic permafrost accelerating the climate change either.
