Press Release 09-111 - Video
Ted Schuur describes the Alaskan site where he and his colleagues carried out the research.

Ted Schuur, an ecologist at the University of Florida, describes the Alaskan site where he and colleagues carried out the research described in a recent article in the journal Nature. The site monitored over the past two decades, with permafrost temperature measurements beginning before the permafrost began to thaw. This detailed record coupled with Schuur's study of ecosystem carbon exchange and old carbon release provide a comprehensive picture of the dynamics of carbon exchange in response to permafrost thaw.
