PBS video highlights LBNL contributions to understanding the perils of Permafrost thaw

The Next Generation Ecosystem Experiment–Arctic project is a collaborative project, led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory, that seeks to integrate process investigations, experiments, and modeling to predict ecosystem behavior and trajectory under warming conditions. Berkeley Lab contributes to the site characterization, modeling, microbial ecology, and energy aspects of the project. The video, by KQED Science writer Joshua Cassidy, highlights some of the novel geophysical laboratory and field approaches that are being developed and implemented by ESD investigators to quantify the Arctic subsurface.
