The Permafrost Carbon Network links biological carbon cycle researchers with networks of physical scientists focused on the thermal state of permafrost. 

Through this connection, the network synthesizes research to produce new knowledge on the role of permafrost carbon in driving climate change in the 21st century and beyond.

Network activities include: 

  1. organization of meetings and working groups designed to synthesize existing permafrost carbon research
  2. dissemination of synthesis results about permafrost carbon to other scientific networks and activities

Together, network efforts are aimed towards linking science knowledge on permafrost carbon and climate with decision makers and the public. Learn more at or read the recent Nature article.
