Short summary
CO2 loss from soil to the atmosphere (soil respiration) is a key ecosystem function, especially in systems with permafrost. We find that soil respiration shows a non-linear threshold at permafrost depths > 140 cm and that the number of large trees governs soil respiration. This suggests that remote sensing could be used to estimate spatial variation in soil respiration and (with knowledge of key thresholds) empirically constrain models that predict ecosystem responses to permafrost thaw.
