The in situ hydraulic conductivity of moderately decomposed, catotelm (subsurface) peat is often anomalously low (10−5 to 10−7 cm s−1) considering that the porosity (n) of this peat is often as high as 80–97%, and the dry bulk density (pb) as low as 0.05–0.25 g cm−3. It has recently been hypothesized that this is the result of a progressive occlusion of pores in the peat matrix by bubbles of gas (especially methane) which are generated in-situ by ongoing anaerobic respiration. To test this… Expand
