First issue of "Changing Ice" published: A newsletter of Cryosphere Research in Alaska

The first newsletter "Changing Ice" targeting Cryosphere research in Alaska has been published and features several research examples from the GI Permafrost Lab. With this newsletter projects and discoveries led by Alaskan Cryosphere scientists are highlighted with the hope to create a tool that allows efficient communication between scientists and stakeholders.

Leaking lakes featured in NASA Publication: Sensing our Planet

Work on thermokarst lakes by Guido Grosse and colleagues Katey Walter Anthony and Melanie Engram is being featured in NASA's annual outreach publication "Sensing our Planet", which highlights current NASA Earth Science Research. The article "Leaking Lakes" was published in November 2012 and can be found here.

Permafrost thaw and receding glaciers enhance geologic methane seepage

A new article published in Nature Geoscience led by Dr. Katey Walter Anthony and co-authored by Dr. Guido Grosse from the GI Permafrost Lab highlights findings of geologic methane seepage in zones of Arctic permafrost thaw and receding glaciers. Results indicate that in a warmer future climate, deep geologic methane sources currently trapped under a Cryosphere cap may increasingly contribute to the greenhouse gas budget of the Earth's atmosphere as this cap is degrading.
