Synopsis

Frozen soils, or permafrost, can perfectly preserve animals and plants for thousands of years. But some of these ancient soils are also storing huge volumes of greenhouse gases that will be released as permafrost melts due to rising Arctic temperatures. Studying permafrost behavior under different environmental conditions is allowing researchers to better understand the impact of melting permafrost in the future.
