New knowledge about permafrost improving climate models

New knowledge about permafrost improving climate models
New research findings from the Centre for Permafrost (CENPERM) at the Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management, University of Copenhagen, document that permafrost during thawing may result in a substantial release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and that the future water content in the soil is crucial to predict the effect of permafrost thawing. The findings may lead to more accurate climate models in the future. http://phys.org/news/2013-07-knowledge-permafrost-climate.html#nwlt
