  • Abstract The release of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) from peatlands implies a loss of sequestered carbon. During the last two decades, an increase of DOC exports in Europe and North America has been reported. The influence of land use on DOC has been contradictorily discussed and a lack of knowledge exists particularly for fens in Northeastern Germany. Therefore, we aimed to investigate DOC release from fen soils with differing land use intensity. To exclude climatic influences and water… CONTINUE READING
