Soil temperature (T[subscript s]) change is a key indicator of the dynamics of permafrost. On seasonal and interannual timescales, the variability of T[subscript s] determines the active-layer depth, which regulates hydrological soil properties and biogeochemical processes. On the multi-decadal scale, increasing T[subscript s] not only drives permafrost thaw/retreat but can also trigger and accelerate the decomposition of soil organic carbon. The magnitude of permafrost carbon feedbacks is thus closely linked to the rate of change of soil thermal regimes.
