Increased climate change risk to permafrost

A new international research study, including climate change experts from the University of Leeds, University of Exeter and the Met Office, reveals that permafrost is more sensitive to the effects of global warming than previously thought. The study, published today in Nature Climate Change


all areas and gusts in excess of 70 mph were very common. Northern England had some of the highest gusts. These included 98 mph at Leeds and 100 mph at St Abb’s Head (Scottish Borders). Heavy, squally showers continued over the whole of the British Isles. The showers were wintry, falling as snow
