Landscape Controls on Peatland Carbon poster - 17 Feb 2021

Over the past 300 million years peatland carbon has accumulated, removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and storing it as carbon in the Earth's crust, providing a long-term cooling mechanism for global climate. This seminar will examine: 

  • When, where and why peatlands form in the landscape
  • Controls on the Longevity and Stability of the Peatland Carbon Store
  • Consequences of expanding Peat Accumulation Models beyond the Holocene
  • Limits to peat accumulation and the ultimate fate of Modern Peatland
