decades, scientists' attention to the permafrost and the processes taking place
in it, is constantly growing. Subarctic and arctic ecosystems are most affected
by global warming and pollution. On the other hand, these vast regions largely
determine the climate of the entire planet, primarily through their impact on
the biogeochemical carbon cycle and, consequently, on the level of greenhouse
gas concentrations in the atmosphere. When the temperature rises, the
permafrost begins to melt: this process is accompanied by the buried organic
carbon release and become one of the global climate change scenarios major elements.
Over recent years
book "Permafrost" (edited by Oleg Pokrovsky) covers the topics of
permafrost in a broader geographical context. Colleagues from all over
published the first issue of the international scientific journal
«BioClimLand». Its main mission to highlight the most urgent science problems
in the field of interaction of biota, climate and landscapes. The magazine
published articles in Russian and English. Among the authors TSU young scholars
