Part of Dr. Walters research involves winter time excursions to frozen over permafrost melt lakes to measure the trapped methane beneath the ice. She recently returned from her Siberia project and reported that the size of the melt lakes had increased five times in her two years absence.  Make sure to see her research videos. This is real survivorwoman climate research – she blows things up!  I have also put together a string of fantastic Arctic climate change related videos here. Polar Videos.swf
