Title: Report from the International Permafrost Association: carbon pools in permafrost regions

Author: Kuhry, Peter; Ping, Chien-Lu; Schuur, Edward A.G.; Tarnocai, Charles; Zimov, Sergey.;

Date: 2009

Source: Permafrost and Periglacial Processes. 20: 229-234

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: The IPA Carbon Pools in Permafrost Regions (CAPP) Project started in 2005, with endorsement of the Earth System Science Partnership (EESP) Global Carbon Project and the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) Climate and Cryosphere Project. CAPP is also a project of the IPY. The project was launched because there is considerable concern and increased awareness both within the international scientific community and the general public about the effects of global warming on the very large soil organic-matter pool in permafrost regions. The overall aims of the IPA CAPP Project are to assess below-ground organic-matter quantity and quality along ecoclimatic and edaphic gradients in high-latitude and high-altitude regions characterized by the presence of permafrost.

Keywords: IPY, permafrost, soil carbon
