Record #173433:

The two faces of Arctic warming / Celeste Biever.

Title: The two faces of Arctic warming / Celeste Biever.
Author(s): Biever, Celeste.
Date: 2005.
In: New Scientist. (2005.), Vol. 186(2503) (2005)
Abstract: Reports study of 515,000 square-kilometre area of Siberia, showing effect of permafrost warming on lakes. By comparing satellite images from 1970s with those form 1997 to 2004, study showed total lake area had decreased, with over 1000 large lakes shrinking and 125 others disappearing. In north, however, permafrost is thick enough to have survived to contain lakes expanded by thaw. Further south, where permafrost is thinner and discontinuous, thawing allows lakes to drain into soil. Local variations in permafrost thickness may determine whether a lake drains or not.
