how much of a change in temperature is noticeable between 1990 and present day for permafrost,
how would you expect to communicate what this change means to people who rely on this permafrost for sustainable lifestyle

"Sergey Marchenko" on April 30th, 2011 4:02 am:

The permafrost temperature increased by 0.5-2 deg C during this time period. Papers supporting this amount are posted on the FS home page. The papers come from a special issue of Permafrost and periglacial Processes Journal.

How will this temperature rise affect you in your community? What will you have to do to live in the warmer temperatures.

WITHIN the Last Week,due to the Prevailing Northerly Winds that persisted (AND ‘What’ else?) – in SPITE of the Record or Near-Record COLD Temperatures that Northwestern Alaska has had in November, December, January and March – the Arctic Ocean /CHUKCHI Sea IcePack BEGAN ‘Calving’ Ice Floes South from the Bering Strait. VISIBLE on their Website at “”, Click on ‘POES’ Satellite / ‘Loop’, from NOAA’s Polar Orbiting Satellites ‘4f2f’ and ‘4abf’, the Northerly Winds BROKE-UP a Widening Lead 500 MILES Long, that stretched UPWIND and Widened to 150-200 MILES Wide Northwest of Barrow!

Today’s Satellite Loop show even MORE dramatic CHUKCHI Sea/Arctic Ocean IcePack Floe Movements in response to the Prevailing Easterly/Norhteasterly Winds:
ALL the Arctic Ocean Icepack WEST of the lead (mentioned in my previous post, above)that formed along Alaska’s Northwestern Coast has BEGUN moving West, South of the Russian Wrangell Island!
It appears that there a Miles-WIDE Leads in the Arctic Ocean IcePack that go from BOTH the Bering Strait AND the Siberian Arctic Coast West of Wrangell ALL the way to the NORTH Pole!
