Circumpolar bases are also meauring the thawing of the permafrost in Alaska,
Northern Canada, and Siberia.  (Btw, the general retreat of the ice is one of
the reasons there has been a clustered discovery of human remains like the
iceman in the Alps--the ice is giving up its old secrets.)

On this scale, miles of plant matter long locked in the permafrost is now
decaying seasonally, contributing its mite to the greenhouse gases.
