Earlier Arctic rain is leading to 'methane emissions going bonkers' | EcoWatch
Researchers who monitored one bog for three years in the Alaskan permafrost have identified yet another instance of what engineers call positive feedback. They found that global warming meant earlier springs and with that, earlier spring rains. And as a consequence, the influx of warm water on what had previously been frozen ground triggered a biological frenzy that sent methane emissions soaring. Rebecca Neumann, a civil and environmental engineering professor at the UW, is quoted.
