[HCG35-03] Landscape change induced due to permafrost degradation in eastern Siberia: For knowledge-action with local communities
Keywords:Permafrost, Thermokarst, Alaas, eastern Siberia
The present study examined the relationship between permafrost degradation and eco-hydro-climatological changes in Churapcha in CY where the apparent environmental changes have been observed due to the unexpected climate–driven damages of permafrost-related landscape by transdisciplinary research project under “People and Community in the Arctic: Possibility of Sustainable Development” in the ArCS (Arctic Challenge for Sustainability) project funded by Japan. We carried out initial collaborative excursion and field research in September 2016 based on co-design of field research with local researchers at degraded dry grasslands and agricultural fields. We have attempted to extract current environmental issues and future perspectives of natural and social systems under activating permafrost environmental changes.
