Sorry, no etymologies found.
Thawing of permafrost in peatlands and frozen organic matter sequestered by cryoturbation is likely to accelerate biochemical decomposition and increase the GHGs released into the atmosphere.
Winter CO2 emissions have been also explained by other mechanisms (e.g., the physical release of summer-accumulated gases or abiotic CO2 formation due to cryoturbation ).
