Permafrost carbon: What soil science has to say about its distribution and fate
Permafrost soil carbon is a subject that’s getting enormous attention today thanks to mounting concerns about climate change. According to recent estimates, about a third of all of the terrestrial carbon in the world is stored in the perpetually frozen soils of the circumpolar regions and some alpine areas. In the meantime, there is growing evidence that the permafrost is warming, and warming quickly, leading to increasing focus on a key question: How can we predict how much of that stored carbon will go back into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide and methane?
