On Wednesday, researchers said the arctic tundra emits the same amount of methane in winter as in the warmer months, a surprising finding that bolsters understanding of how greenhouse gases interact with nature.Torben Christensen, a biogeochemist at Lund University in Sweden, said scientists have long known that wetlands produce large amounts of methane and had thought it unlikely that greenhouse gases escaped from beneath frozen tundra."Mother Nature is showing us something that is really...

By Simon Price Max Tundra Parallax Error Beheads You DOMINO Electronic oddball Ben Jacobs has been in hiding in the six years since the last Max Tundra album, with just the odd remix to remind us he's still alive. 'Parallax Error Beheads You' sounds like a previously unimaginable hybrid of Steely Dan and Scritti Politti, or a compendium of 1970s kids' TV themes gone berserk, except with a modern vocabulary of eBay, iPods and Myspace. It's so hyper-melodic that it almost flips over into...

Frozen arctic soil contains nearly twice the greenhouse-gas-producing organic material as was previously estimated, according to recently published research by University of Alaska Fairbanks scientists. School of Natural Resources & Agricultural Sciences professor Chien-Lu Ping published his latest findings on the Nature Geoscience and Scientific American Web sites. Wielding jackhammers, Ping and a team of scientists dug down more than one meter into the permafrost to take soil samples...

Greenhouse gas emissions from previously frozen organic carbon in soil are seen as larger than previously believed The thawing of permafrost in northern latitudes, which greatly increases microbial decomposition of carbon compounds in soil, will dominate other effects of warming in the region and could become a major force promoting the release of carbon dioxide and thus further warming, according to a new assessment in the September 2008 issue of BioScience. The study, by Edward A. G. Schuur...

By Carrie Peyton Dahlberg TOOLIK FIELD STATION, Alaska - Beyond the Arctic Circle, teams of scientists measure widening slumps as ice melts beneath the tundra. They scuff through tussocks blackened by unexpected fires, and search for fish in drought-depleted streams. The researchers are taking the pulse of a warming earth in a landscape supremely adapted to cold, one that may be an early- warning zone for lands far south. "It's not just an Alaska thing," said Syndonia "Donie" Bret-...
