Land and Subsea Permafrost Pathways with Abrupt Climate System Change
I recorded this video at the Cryosphere Pavilion at COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.
It contains four scientific talks on various aspects on the cutting edge of permafrost research.
1) Overview: Local to Global Impacts of Permafrost Thaw
2) Permafrost Pathways: Abrupt permafrost thaw versus gradual permafrost thaw. Surprisingly, abrupt permafrost thaw is NOT in ANY climate models, while gradual permafrost thaw is ONLY in a FEW climate models
3) Fires in the Permafrost Zone, and their consequences
4) Subsea permafrost including methane hydrates (clathrates) and their effects on climate.
