Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Our Special Issue on "Dynamic Disturbance Processes in Permafrost Regions" in the open-access journal Remote Sensing strives to bring together research on how disturbances shape and restructure permafrost ecosystems. We welcome submissions on the application of remote sensing to a broad range of disturbances, including thermokarst and thermoerosion, thermokarst lake dynamics, wildfire-ecosystem interactions, and anthropogenic disturbances. We particularly encourage manuscripts linking interacting components that influence periglacial ecosystem dynamics (e.g., wildfire and vegetation; thermokarst and hydrology; climate and thermokarst).
