Permafrost loss changes Yukon River chemistry with global implications
Permafrost loss due to a rapidly warming Alaska is leading to significant changes in the freshwater chemistry and hydrology of Alaska's Yukon River Basin with potential global climate implications. Permafrost rests below much of the surface of the Yukon River Basin, a silent store of thousands of years of frozen water, minerals, nutrients and contaminants. Changes to the chemistry of the Arctic Ocean could lead to changes in currents and weather patterns worldwide.
