Two scientific articles bring a better understanding of the spatial variability of soil organic carbon in the Arctic permafrost region. One article published in Global Biogeochemical Cycles led by Umeå researcher Matthias Siewert, and with Gustaf Hugelius as co-author, is describing how permafrost and periglacial landforms cause a unique variability in Arctic soils. A second article in Science Advances provides a new map for the soil organic carbon stored in the circumpolar permafrost region.
Welcome to a workshop where we provide inspiration and discuss possibilities to conduct field work in the Swedish Arctic at Tarfala Research Station, TRS. TRS is hosted by the Dept. of Physical Geography at Stockholm University and is Sweden’s only research station located right next to glaciers in an Arctic alpine environment. The station is situated in the Tarfala Valley in the Kebnekaise Mountains in
