Permafrost Laboratory : Lena River Delta

The Lena River Delta is a very change sensitive region at the North Siberian land-ocean boundary and situated in the continuous permafrost zone. This sensitivity makes the Lena River Delta an important Arctic region to study early impacts of global change (permafrost degradation, coastal erosion, sea level rise, changes in fluvial discharge, land cover change, etc.).
Several activities are carried out in close collaboration with the AWI Potsdam and Russian partners, to study past and modern processes in this periglacial, deltaic tundra landscape, and their impacts and feedbacks.
