A multi-year perspective on methane cycling in a shallow peat fen in central New York State, USA

Abstract

Minerotrophic sedge fens are common in sub-arctic regions and are a significant source of atmospheric methane (CH4), yet they have received less attention than other peatlands, such as boreal ombrotrophic bogs, which are smaller sources of CH4. At the process level, CH4 fluxes in sub-arctic systems are limited primarily by cold temperatures, and thus are… (More)
