‘Pancake ice ’ on the Siberian Lena river

This Ter­raSAR-X im­age shows ‘pan­cake ice’ on the Siberi­an Lena Riv­er and ice sheets on the wa­ter in a large part of the arc­tic riv­er delta. When soil and wa­ter be­gin to freeze, the ex­change of car­bon is re­duced in per­mafrost land­scapes.

This TerraSAR-X image shows ‘pancake ice’ on the Siberian Lena River and ice sheets on the water in a large part of the arctic river delta. When soil and water begin to freeze, the exchange of carbon is reduced in permafrost landscapes.
