The changing terrestrial environments: dynamics and impacts
permafrost thaw at multiple scales: effects on hydrology and biogeochemistry

Permafrost thaw due to continued climate
change and anthropogenic influences has significant impact on local and
regional hydrology and biogeochemistry. The release of previously sequestered
organic matter via greenhouse gas emissions has implications for global climate
projections, and changing permafrost landscape dynamics has wide reaching
impacts on water quality and aquatic ecosystem equilibrium. Due to the complex
interplay between climate, permafrost, and people, there is a strong need for
cross-discipline collaboration and input from local populations. We welcome
studies which focus on the interactions between climate change and permafrost
dynamics and the effects of these interactions on biogeochemical and
hydrological systems at different temporal and spatial scales.
