Worth noting Page 21, an academic research consortium concerned with "Changing Permafrost in the Arctic and its Global Effects in the 21st Century". It aims

to understand and quantify the vulnerability of permafrost environments to a changing global climate, and to investigate the feedback mechanisms associated with increasing greenhouse gas emissions from permafrost zones. This research will make use of a unique set of Arctic permafrost investigations performed at stations that span the full range of Arctic bioclimatic zones. The project will bring together the best European permafrost researchers and eminent scientists from Canada, Russia, the USA, and Japan.

It brings together elite European permafrost researchers, together with eminent scientists from Canada, Russia, the USA, and Japan.

Well worth having a rummage around their site and the various associated blogs.

Some other links:
The International Permafrost Association

COPER (Coastal permafrost erosion, organic carbon and nutrient release in the Arctic nearshore zone) under the aegis of the Helmhoz Association and the Alfred-Wegener-Institut, assessing the pace and nature of sediment and organic matter transfer through erosion of permafrost coasts in the southern Canadian Beaufort Sea.

Hi Anne,

Thanks for both of these sources, I'll have a look through later this week. They sound very interesting.
