Do you work in permafrost environments? Lend your voice to our synthesis that aims to identify key links between biophysical processes, ecosystem services, and social impacts from thaw. Take a 5-15 minute survey!

A synthesis project by Carolyn Gibson, Todd Brinkman and Merritt Turestky through the University of Guelph aimes to understand key linkages between permafrost thaw and its biophysical and social impacts. As part of this synthesis they are conducting an expert opinion survey to consolidate current research approaches and knowledge integration efforts to identify key knowledge gaps. As an expert in the field of permafrost science or an expert working in permafrost environments, your knowledge and expertise is invaluable. Please consider taking a 5-15 minutes survey  Funding for this project comes from the National Science and Engineering Research Council in the form of a Doctoral scholarship awarded to C. Gibson. This project has been reviewed by the Research Ethics Board for compliance with federal guidelines for research involving human participants (Ref#: 20-03-006).
