Special Issue focused on “Limnological processes in permafrost environments” will published in the journal Sedimentary Geology (IF: 2.134).
Given that permafrost lakes and ponds have effects that extend far beyond the Cryosphere, such as the implications of their greenhouse gas emissions on the global carbon cycle, and that these lakes and ponds, in turn, affect landscape evolution in permafrost regions, we seek to include papers touching on diverse topics in permafrost environments to underline the importance of these regions in global change studies. We welcome manuscripts that encompass temporal scales ranging from hours to millennia, focus on highly variable physical, biological and geochemical conditions, and consider the importance of the sedimentary records of permafrost lakes as archives of past climate and environmental conditions.
The aim of the special issue is to highlight the state of the art in understanding limnological and paleolimnological processes in permafrost areas.
Papers can be submitted from now until 30th June 2015.
