Permafrost [electronic resource]: Secrets in Siberian Ice

Telepool GmbH
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
The key to understanding climate change could be locked inside hundreds of feet-and thousands of years-of Siberian permafrost. This program follows the literally groundbreaking expedition of a team of scientists who set out to discover the climatic history trapped within the frozen earth beneath a crater lake in northern Siberia. Their research is presented in tandem with fieldwork in the Alps by fellow geologists and geophysicists contending with the effects of global warming: landslides. Expert commentary, time-lapse photography, and dramatic film footage all serve to emphasize permafrost's crucial role in providing geologic stability.
