Swedish soil scientists are studying the carbon cycle at Aktru


Stockholm University professor Peter Kuri and Master’s student Didak Paskual have conducted a series of experiments at the TSU research station Aktru in the Altai Mountains. The soil scientists made a sampling in the areas where the highland permafrost lies in order to evaluate the carbon stock, which is one of the main constituents of greenhouse gases in frozen soils.

The project is in the framework of INTERACT 2, the international research and monitoring programme in the Arctic, which includes three stations of Tomsk State University: Aktru, Kaybasovo, and Khanymey.
