Summary:
The key to understanding climate change could be locked inside hundreds of feet-and thousands of years-of Siberian permafrost. This program follows the literally groundbreaking expedition of a team of scientists who set out to discover the climatic history trapped within the frozen earth beneath a crater lake in northern Siberia. Their research is presented in tandem with fieldwork in the Alps by fellow geologists  Read more...

The key to understanding climate change could be locked inside hundreds of feet-and thousands of years-of Siberian permafrost. This program follows the literally groundbreaking expedition of a team of scientists who set out to discover the climatic history trapped within the frozen earth beneath a crater lake in northern Siberia. Their research is presented in tandem with fieldwork in the Alps by fellow geologists and geophysicists contending with the effects of global warming: landslides. Expert commentary, time-lapse photography, and dramatic film footage all serve to emphasize permafrost's crucial role in providing geologic stability.
