FrostByte J Strauss: Organic carbon stocks in ice-rich permafrost of the Yedoma region

Description

This FrostByte was created by Jens Strauss for the Permafrost Carbon Network Project Leads Meeting, held in Flagstaff, AZ, USA in May, 2015.

 

This FrostByte is about ice-rich Yedoma and thermokarst permafrost in the Yedoma region. I found that that this kind of permafrost stores about 213 gigatonnes organic carbon, which is a significant amount of carbon so far not included in climate models.
