      Arctic permafrost soils store substantial reserves of organic matter (OM) from which microbial transformation contributes significantly to greenhouse gas emissions of CH4 and CO2. However, many younger sediments exposed ...
    • Observed sediment and solute transport from the Kangerlussuaq sector of the Greenland Ice Sheet (2006–2016) 

      Hasholt, B.; van As, Dirk; Mikkelsen, Andreas B.; Mernild, Jacob Sebastian Haugaard; Yde, Jacob C. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
