SCOPE AND CONTENTS

Contents

Permafrost thaw exposes previously frozen soil organic matter to microbial decomposition. This process generates methane and carbon dioxide, and thereby fuels a positive feedback process that leads to further warming and thaw. Despite widespread permafrost degradation during the past ∼40 years, the degree to which permafrost thaw may be contributin...
