Early spring rain boosts methane from thawing permafrost by 30 percent — ScienceDaily

Arctic permafrost is thawing as the Earth warms due to climate change. In some cases, scientists predict that this thawing soil will release increasing amounts of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, that is known to trap more heat in our planet’s atmosphere. Now a University of Washington-led team has found a new reason behind increased […]
