"Tunnel Man" is permafrost scientist and adventurer and pretty cool person it seems.

I love reading about permafrost! Its quite variable in different areas (some isn't really permanent at all) and has such profound effects on soil and the plant communities above it. Some of the articles describing what happens when the truly permanent forms thaw and disappear are sobering.
