Just wanted to know how long it takes for decomposition of material to make new soil given the permafrost.
Are we talking decades or what? See you on the 4th.

Hi Papee,

That is an excellent question that scientist have been trying to answer for years. There are research plot here at Toolik that had the soil remove 10-15 years ago that still look the same today. It definitely takes several decades for decomposition to take place. That is way it is so important to protect the tundra because the damage done today will take years to heal.

Thanks for the great question, please keep reading my journal
