Permafrost is an important component of the cryosphere. It plays a critical role in the functioning of Arctic environmental ecosystems and global climate change, and affects human activities in the polar and alpine regions. This multidisciplinary session is focused on research and education activities that address changes facing permafrost regions. This session welcomes papers on history and methods of permafrost research, development of new information and data resources, observations and modeling studies and socio-economic dimensions of the permafrost regions.
