Decomposition ‘hotspots’ in a rewetted peatland: implications for water quality and carbon cycling

Abstract

Restoration of drained peatlands has been promoted to reduce gaseous and aquatic carbon losses; however, there are conflicting reports as to its effectiveness. Here we report “hotspots” of organic matter decomposition as a result of rewetting a drained peatland in Wales, at the field-scale, in the medium/long-term with implications for water quality and… (More)
