New projections of permafrost change in Alaska’s northern reaches suggest far-reaching effects will come sooner than expected. At a press conference at AGU, researchers from the University of Alaska Fairbanks and the University of Colorado will discuss the latest model predictions for permafrost thawing in northern Alaska. “The temperature of permafrost is rapidly changing,” said Vladimir Romanovsky, head of the Permafrost Laboratory at the University of Alaska Fairbanks Geophysical Institute.
