Estimation and Sensitivity of Carbon Storage in Permafrost of North-Eastern Yakutia
Description: Organic carbon derived from permafrost can provide a substrate for greenhouse gas production where the buried carbon pool thaws and mobilizes into biogeochemical cycles. Much attention has focused on the permafrost carbon of the Yedoma region of Siberia due to the wide distribution of organic and ice-rich deposits. Here, scientists present a new estimation of carbon storage in the upper 25 m of permafrost in north-eastern Yakutia, and a new map of Quaternary deposits derived from drilling data.
