[1] Recent and long-term accumulation rates of carbon (C), using Pband C-dating, were examined in 23 ombrotrophic peatlands in eastern Canada, where average 1990–1996 atmospheric wet nitrogen (N) deposition ranged from 0.3 to 0.8 g N m 2 yr . The average recent rate of C accumulation (RERCA) over the past 150 years was 73 ± 17 (SD) g C m 2 yr , ranging from 40 to 117 g C m 2 yr . The difference in RERCA between hummocks (78 g C m 2 yr ) and hollows (65 g C m 2 yr ) was significant. Increased… CONTINUE READING
