          Abstract

          Permafrost plays a hugely significant role in sustaining the global climate for many reasons. As it thaws, gases (usually methane and carbon dioxide) that have lain trapped underneath the ice for millennia are released. These gases then enter the atmosphere and accelerate global warming which leads to more permafrost degradation and it eventually becomes a problem which exacerbates itself. In recent times, the warming and thawing of the surface layer of the permafrost region in northeastern Eurasia has caused serious impacts on the living environment of local residents. In many ways, the thawing of permafrost can be seen as a new natural disaster and, as such, it requires understanding from local populations to put measures in place to mitigate the effects. Associate Professor Yoshihiro Iijima is part of a international team of researchers investigating the effects of climate change on the permafrost regions of Russia and Mongolia. The findings could help local populations introduce conservation activities to their societies
