Dr. Romanovshy, Professor of Geophysics at the Geophysical Institue, University of Alaska Fairbanks spoke to reporter Tanya Lewis at LiveScience, about the mysterous "craters" of Yamal and Northern Russia. Since their sightings many speculative mechanisms have been offered of their formaiion and why. Dr. Romanovsky gives a clear explanation of how and why such surface features can and are forming in permafrost regions. We need more timely measurements and observations of these new features of the permafrost regions of Earth in order to know for sure.
