  2. 2. Influence of permafrost disintegration on wetland carbon fluxes in Abisko, Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Aida Esmailzadeh Davani; [2021]
    Keywords : Physical Geography; Ecosystem Analysis; Permafrost; CH4 flux; CO2 flux; Abisko; Wetlands; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The northern permafrost regions are experiencing a rapid warming as surface temperatures are rising, causing a disintegration of permafrost and a deepening of the active layer (AL). This releases previously frozen carbon, making it available for decomposition by microbes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Estimating active layer thickness at the high Arctic study site Zackenberg from remotely sensed ground subsidence

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Lotte Wendt; [2021]
    Keywords : active layer thickness; DInSAR; subsidence; permafrost; Zackenberg; CALM; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The active layer thickness (ALT) is an indicator of permafrost thaw, which potentially leads to the release of large amounts of greenhouse gases under global warming, and thus could further amplify climate change. The thaw depth of the active layer also governs seasonal surface deformation, caused by the volume change between ice to water, which poses risks for slope stability and infrastructure foundations.

  4. 4. Traits of peat- and upland-derived stream dissolved organic carbon in the permafrost region around Abisko, northern Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Nora Kainz; [2021]
    Keywords : physical geography; ecosystem analysis; permafrost degradation; DOC; DOC concentration; stable isotope carbon signature; DOC quality; DOC degradation; Atmospheric Sciences and Biogeochemical Cycles; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Climate change-induced thawing of permafrost mobilizes previously frozen carbon of high potential reactivity, thereby, fuelling microbiological production of greenhouse gases. For this work, an analysis of the quantity, quality, and bioreactivity of DOC in streams from the Stordalen discontinuous permafrost catchment was carried out with stream water samples during the relatively warm summer of 2018.

  5. 5. Carbon Storage in Quaternary Deposits of the Circum-Arctic Permafrost Region

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi

    Author : Annegret Udke; [2021]
    Keywords : Quaternary deposits; Carbon storage; Permafrost region; Organic Geochemistry; Sedimentology; Vulnerability; Thermokarst;

    Abstract : Rapid warming in northern latitudes will lead to permafrost thaw and subsequent carbon remobilisa­tion and release to the atmosphere. To incorporate the permafrost carbon climate feedback in globalEarth System Models, it is of importance to know the carbon stored in the circum­Arctic permafrostregion as accurate and precise as possible.
