Abstract

Sub-permafrost methane can migrate to the atmosphere when talik development or changing permafrost morphology create pathways from the pocket to the bottom of an open-talik lake. We hypothesize that the migration of methane into open-talik lakes from the sub-permafrost can occur through advection and diffusion as a dissolved gas and by movement as an immiscible fluid.
