Meet methane and nitrous oxide. You'll wish you hadn't.
Seemingly harmless jello-like mounds throughout Siberia hide a pocket of methane that could explode at any time.
The gaping wide Batagaika crater continues to expand at an alarming rate, unearthing long-forgotten forests and stored greenhouse gases.
A new study revealed that the methane emissions from the thawing permafrost is much lower than originally thought.
Officials blame global warming caused by climate change for the recent outbreak of Anthrax in Russia.
A new study suggests that the permafrost below shallow arctic lake are thawing due to the changing winter climate.
Years after the infamous Anaktuvuk River fire – the largest recorded Arctic tundra fire – researchers have found a link between wildfires in the Arctic tundra and widespread permafrost thaw.
Scientists say that a fourth virus, unlike those from the three known families of viruses, has been found in a single section of Arctic permafrost.
It's no secret that our warming climate is causing ice everywhere to melt, but now new research shows that this thaw may release a massive storehouse of carbon in long-frozen Arctic soils.
Scientists have long feared that as the world gets warmer, thawing permafrost may lead to a significant effect on global warming. But now new research suggests that this same Arctic permafrost may actually help us adapt to climate change.
New research has revealed that the Arctic is losing its ponds, with the important habitats shrinking more every day. This may seem like a strange revelation for some, as past research has revealed that the Arctic continues to melt in the wake of climate change. Wouldn't more melt water mean more ponds? Now, a pair of researchers explain what's really going on.
Climate scientists will be happy to hear that Alaska, despite large temperature increases in recent decades, is showing no signs of rising methane levels, at least for now.
A vast amount of carbon stored in Arctic permafrost is being converted into carbon dioxide (CO2) once it enters freshwater systems - a process that is worrying experts tracking climate change. This process was long thought to be enabled by microbial activity, but a new study identifies that sunlight itself might be the true culprit.
