Adapting to Permafrost Change: A Science Framework



Permafrost is a defining feature of the circumpolar north, and with climate change already affecting its range and behavior, understanding the fate of northern environments is a pressing concern. The Canadian Arctic Development and Adaptation to Permafrost in Transition (ADAPT) project is bringing together researchers from within and outside Canada to study the mechanisms and consequences of permafrost degradation and to place this information within an interdisciplinary systems framework.
