Call for abstracts for permafrost session: Arctic Science Summit Week

Lara Hughes-Allen

Dear Cryolist members,

                                                  

We are pleased to announce a session on permafrost at the Arctic Science Summit Week in March 2021 (virtual).

 

The deadline to submit an abstract to this session is November 30, 2020!

 

Please follow the link below for more information on the conference and to submit an abstract. https://assw2021.pt/

 

Session Theme:

The changing terrestrial environments: dynamics and impacts


Session Title:

Implications of permafrost thaw at multiple scales: effects on hydrology and biogeochemistry

 

Convenors:

Lara Hughes-Allen (Université Paris Saclay), Frédéric Bouchard (Université Paris Saclay), Ylva Sjöberg (University of Copenhagen)

 

Abstract

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.

 

Cheers,

Lara
