Coastlines’ contribution to climate change might have been underestimated

Source: Science Daily

Permafrost coasts make up about one third of the Earth’s total coastline. As a result of accelerated climate change, whole sections of coastline rapidly thaw, and erode into the Arctic Ocean. A new study now shows that large amounts of carbon dioxide are potentially being produced along these eroding permafrost coastlines in the Arctic.
