Permafrost is a layer of earth that remains frozen solid throughout the entire year. Recent observations show that permafrost temperatures have increased during the last 20-30 years in almost all areas of the Northern Hemisphere, softening the earth. In the Arctic, this is affecting landscape stability, causing landslides, erosion and significant damage to airport runways, houses and infrastructure of Arctic communities.
