Peatlands, climate change mitigation and biodiversity conservation • Peatlands (lands with peat at the surface) are highly space-effective carbon stocks: they cover only 3% of the land, but contain more carbon than the entire the sea level is rising, the peatlands are being bogged File Size: KB.

PEATLAND RESTORATION AND ECOSYSTEM SERVICES: AN INTRODUCTION 3 resources, such as livestock grazing, timber collection, plantations for pulp wood, oil palm and other crops, and peat extraction for fuel and horticul-tural growing media, led to widespread drainage. In Europe, the majorityFile Size: KB. Estimating soil carbon loss from plantations on peat-lands requires calculating the difference in carbon balance between non-plantation and plantation eco-systems: ff f net plantation initial =− (1) where f plantation is net peat soil carbon flux in a plantation (Cha −1yr), f initial is net peat soil carbon flux from the pre-plantation Cited by:   The subsidence process depends on the peat compaction and water level. Subsidence is not linear with time. In other words, subsidence occurred rapidly .

Williams, Cited by:   As concern over global warming escalates, researchers are turning to an unsuspecting vegetation matter that may provide a crucial link to sea-level rise. Peat bogs, a type of wetland where an organic matter called peat forms, act much like a natural sponge. At nearly 95 percent water, the peat bogs are expanding, allowing greater absorption of.

Bakker, B. Minne, H.G.A. Noordman. Changes in peatland cover from swamp forest to agriculture, plantation, or settlement may cause decreasing water level in the peat. As a consequence, the decreasing water level may increase the risk of forest and land fires due to dry peat condition (Susilo et al., ) and may decrease peat moisture content as an indicator for fire risk.

peatlands (having a peat soil) and wetlands with mineral soil. Varying with country and scientific discipline, peatlands have been defined as having a peat layer ranging from 20 to centimetres (cm) thick, whereas also the minimum content of organic matter of the “peat” varies similarly across definitions (Joosten et al.

The 0 level in the diagram shows the peatland surface level. Immediately after restoration, slight flooding often occurs in peatlands, but the water level soon stabilises to near natural levels.

The subsi-dence, plus a rise in sea level means that now most of the peat meadows are below sea level. Throughout these low-lying Dutch polders, the water table is shallow and a dense network of engi-neered watercourses and pumping stations is needed to drain the land.

Surprisingly, most peats in the tropics are also less than 10 years old. Coastal peats in South East Asia are generally less than 6 years old (Andriesse ; Driessen ). Dating of peat samples from Sarawak by the 14 C method indicates a maximum age of 4 B.P.

(Anderson ). Those of Florida date back 4 years (Lucas ). Water table: Common spikerush is found from sea level to mid-elevations on seasonally to permanently flooded sites, often in moderate to wide valley bottoms with low gradients.

Sites where common spikerush occurs are generally permanently flooded or seasonally flooded, with the water table dropping to 12 inches (30 cm) or less below the soil surface late in the season []. However, a policy brief published today by Wetlands International and Tropenbos International contradicts these claims.

It calls for phasing out of drainage-based land-use on peat in Indonesia, and to develop alternative land-uses, involving the rewetting of peatlands.

Peat consists of 90% water and 10% organic material that is mostly carbon. PEAT DEPOSITS OF NORTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA By CORNELIA C.

Late Pleistocene Sea Levels and Resulting Changes in Global Land Distributions Abstract Over the pastyears global sea level has fluctuated through multiple cycles of rises and falls, ranging from a few meters above current level to meters below.

Above 54 mOD the peat is light brown to brown in colour, has a relatively high fine fibre content but low coarse fibre and wood content. In this paper we present documentation for the realistic assessment of the concept of peat as an energy alternative in the United States.
