Full Question

Where can I learn about permafrost and climate change?


The best starting point is Chapter 6 (Cryosphere and Hydrology) [PDF] of the the 1042-page scientific report of the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment, published in November 2005. See especially section 6 of Chapter 6, as it specifically focuses on permafrost.
