The Arctic is warming faster than any other region on Earth, and rapidly becoming a warmer, wetter and more variable environment.
Permafrost, and the ice it contains, influences northern ecosystems and hydrological systems and presents challenges to northern development.
Warming and thawing of permafrost occurs in response to climate change and to environmental disturbances associated with human activity.
The warming and thawing can cause ground instability and alter drainage patterns, which has implications for natural systems and infrastructure integrity.
Create your own permafrost and check how thawing affects buldings.
