Special Issue in Geosciences: Permafrost and Gas Hydrate Response to Ground Temperature Rising
This Special Issue of Geosciences aims to gather original research articles and reviews dedicated to the problems of generation, migration, accumulation, and emission of natural gas in the permafrost of the Arctic coast and the Arctic shelf. This also includes studies of the occurrence of pressure processes and the formation of new positive and negative landforms on the surface of the permafrost zone associated with the accumulation and emission of natural gases.
Permafrost, both on the coast and in the shelf zone of the Arctic, is a natural reservoir that accumulates a large amount of natural gases, mainly methane. Today, the study of the gas component of frozen sediments, its gas permeability, as well as gas occurrences from frozen strata, is especially important in connection with the discussion about possible climatic changes on a planetary scale (global warming, an increase in the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, etc.).
Therefore, I would like to invite you to submit articles about your recent work, field, experimental or case studies in relation to the above and/or the following topics:
- Gas generation and migration in the permafrost zone;
- Gas emission from the frozen strata of the Arctic coast and the Arctic shelf;
- Sources of gas and gas emissions in the Arctic;
- The role of climate change in the decomposition of gas hydrates and gas emissions in the Arctic;
- Cryogenic gas concentration, pressure and explosive processes in permafrost;
- Gas emission craters in permafrost.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Geosciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
