The thawing of permafrost in Siberia will result in release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere

Permafrost thawing will start the process of decomposition of organic substances contained in the soil of the Arctic, which will lead to the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. That was announced on Thursday by the press service of the Krasnoyarsk Scientific Center of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (KSC SB RAS).

The scientists estimate the amount of carbon in the form of organic substances in soils and inside the Arctic permafrost to make up to half of all of its total reserves in the planet’s soil. The soil accumulates it in permafrost regions, in contrast to the more southerly latitudes. If the permafrost would start to thaw, then oxygen would get into the soil, humidity would change, which would lead to decomposition of organic matter, and that process would result in carbonic acid being released to the atmosphere.
