Drainage of peatlands for agriculture causes an increase of CO 2 flux from peat decomposition, contributing to national CO 2 emission. The reverse process, i.e. for re-creation of wetlands, reduces the CO 2 flux, but increases the CH 4 flux. We developed a process model (PEATLAND) to simulate these fluxes from peat soils subject to different water-table management scenarios. The model combines primary production, aerobic decomposition of soil organic matter (including the soil-parent material… CONTINUE READING
