Topic: Quantification of deep permafrost carbon pools and their vulnerability to mobilization ///// Details: Arctic landscapes underlain by permafrost are threatened by climate warming and may degrade by gradual active layer deepening or rapid thaw. Moreover, permafrost deposits are estimated to store substantial amounts of ancient carbon that is potentially vulnerable to mobilization. My research focusses on quantitative and qualitative assessments of permafrost deposit organic carbon pools in thermokarst and Yedoma environments of the circum-arctic permafrost region. A second focus will be on the characterization of the vulnerabilities particularly of deep (below 1 m depth) carbon pools to rapid thaw. For a short video abstract (called FrostByte) about a part of my research, please follow the link: https://vimeo.com/128051018
