  • What's more, if summer melting depth exceeds the winter refreezing level then a layer of permanently unfrozen soil known as a talik forms, sandwiched between the permafrost below and the winter-freezing surface layer.

  • The timing and speed of lake-ice melt depend on the rate of temperature increase in late spring and early summer, wind, and inflow of basin meltwater and terrestrial heat exchanges (e.g., groundwater inflow, geothermal input, heat loss to maintain any underlying talik) [55].

  • The expected rapid soil thaw could also produce a talik — a layer of permanently unfrozen soil sandwiched between the seasonally frozen layer above and the perennially frozen layer below — which in turn creates a more rapid heat build-up in the soil, further accelerating the long-term thaw and release of carbon dioxide (Lawrence et al. 2009, UNEP 2008c, Serreze et al. 2007, Jones et al. 2009, Jones et al. 2008, Mars and Houseknecht 2007).
