It’s snowing plastic in Siberia, and new research will find out how serious the problem is

Siberian Times  10 March 2021 Tomsk scientists are analysing vast quantities of microplastics in winter precipitation across a swathe of Russia. At the beginning of March this year, the large-scale sampling of snow began in Siberia. Samples are collected in different regions of the Siberian federal region, from Gorny Altai (Biysk, Belokurikha) to the Arctic (Tazovsky district). Picture: Dmitry B Daemon_70Rus The research is covering an area from Biysk, close to the Altai Mountains, to the Arctic. Rainwater is also…

Scientific paper: The destruction of permafrost in the Laptev Sea provokes methane emissions

Scientific paper: The destruction of permafrost in the Laptev Sea provokes methane emissions

I do not have the time to do this justice right now. But, in brief, it seems to confirm what we already know from observations. Scientific paper discusses extensive release of methane from the East Siberian Arctic Ocean   This is the paper, just published.         PNAS , March 9, 2021  Significance Extensive release of methane from sediments of the world’s largest continental shelf, the East Siberian Arctic Ocean (ESAO), is one of the few Earth system processes that can cause a…

Peat fires continue to burn in Siberia under the snow in freezing temperatures

 Just like last year these fires will come to life when the snow melts. So few are willing or able to face the Full Catastrophe. They have to ignore or deny one part of the equation, whichever “side” they are on. I suppose that is something that is wired into the human psyche which is another reason why we are doomed.

Video and pictures from latest research mission show gas release in the Laptev and the East Siberian seas

 Bubbling methane craters and super seeps – is this the worrying new face of the undersea Arctic? Video and pictures from latest research mission show gas release in the Laptev and the East Siberian seas. By Valeria Sukhova, Olga Gertcyk A team of 69 scientists from ten countries documented bubble clouds rising from a depth of around 300 metres (985ft) along a 150km (93 mile) undersea slope in the Laptev Sea, and confirmed high methane concentrations by hundreds of onboard…

Softpeddling rapid changes in the Arctic

Softpeddling rapid changes in the Arctic

This is why (along with declining health and energy) I talk less about climate change than I used to and restricted myself to watching what is happening in the Arctic real time. It all takes a lot of time and energy, which I don’t have any more. Laptev Sea Not Refreezing  & Other Arctic Climate  Notes With Dr Zack Labe
